The graph has 2 points
Point A: (-2, 0)
Point B: (0, -1)

- anonymous

point a because perpendicular means the opposite so therefore the opposite of the y axis will be -2

- anonymous

Y=2x+4
Y=-2x+4
Y=-1/2x+2
Y=2x-1

first you need to find slope of two points
(-2,0)(0,-1)
formula to find slope is \[\huge\rm \frac{ y_2 -y_1}{ x_2 -x_1 }\]
plug in y and x values

- anonymous

(-1)-0=
0-(-2)

- anonymous

So -1/2

- Nnesha

yep right :=)
now perpendicular slope is negative reciprocal
for example if slope of first equation is - a/b then slope of perpendicular equation would be positive b/a

- Nnesha

so what is the slope of 2nd equation ?

- anonymous

-2x?

- anonymous

Sorry 2x

- Nnesha

yep right

- anonymous

So would the answer be y=2x+4

- Nnesha

so equation of slope intercept form is y =mx+b
where m is slope so substitute m for 2
and pick on of order pair to plug in value of x and y solve for b

- Nnesha

so how did you get A ?
and how do you know it's not D ?

- anonymous

Because when i look at the line
The y intercept must pass through (-1, 2)

- anonymous

So i thought the line would be slanted the other way

- anonymous

So its d?

- Nnesha

perpendicular line passes through the point (-1,2)
so substitute x and y for (-1,2)

- Nnesha

nope first one is correct i just wanted to know how did YOU get A :=)

- anonymous

Ok, thank you very much

- Nnesha

my pleasure :=)
