@Nnesha Can you help?

OK, so, the line X=4 has what slope?
anonymous
  • anonymous
-4?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
No. When a line is defined by x=k, then for any y, the x value is k: |dw:1440609795470:dw| This means it is straight up and down.
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
So, if it is straight up and down, what is perpendicular to it and passes through (3,5)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
so the slope is undefined and the one that goes through it would have no slope?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Yes. And what has no slope, or is horozontal, and goes through (3,5)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
idk? it would have to have an opposite slope right?
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Well, they sort of do.... it is basically infinite slope for up and down, and the negative invers of infinite slope basically goes to zero... but it would take advanced calculus to discuss how that could work. What I would use is the simpler version of perpendicular. They meet at right angles. So one is a vertiaacal line and one is a horozontal line. If you know that it is a horozontal line, then the only question is which horozontal line passes through the given point?

e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
Exactly. So what is the equation of that line?
anonymous
  • anonymous
wait i think i got it is the answer y=5
e.mccormick
  • e.mccormick
YES! There it is.
