Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For B is it 0 because line P passes through the oirgin (0, 0) and any yintercept that K may have will automatically be 0 because of the P passing through the origin?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A is gonna be a negative since anything multiplied by the perpendicular will give it a negative product.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Very good. Now what are the y intercepts of both these lines?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know for line P it'll be 0 but I don't know for line K. But is the product gonna be 0 regardless because of what i stated above?
