Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so for y = x + 6 the slope is 1 so the slope of a line perpendicular to it would be ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well the slope would be 1 / ((1) = 1 so the line would be y = x + something but why do you think its y = x + 6/

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that correct y = 2 and x  6 = 10 so this cannot be the correct equation
