dont know what to do need help?!?!?!?!?!
Select the equation of the line that passes through the point (3, 5) and is perpendicular to the line x = 4.
y = 5
x = 5
y = 4
x = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2OK, so, the line X=4 has what slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2No. 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So, if it is straight up and down, what is perpendicular to it and passes through (3,5)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the slope is undefined and the one that goes through it would have no slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes. And what has no slope, or is horozontal, and goes through (3,5)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0idk? it would have to have an opposite slope right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Well, 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?
