Arthur is trying to find the equation of a perpendicular to y = '1 over 4 x + 4 in slopeintercept form that passes through the point (−2, 6). Which of the following equations will he use?
A. y − 6 = 1 over 4 (x − (−2))
B. y − (−2) = 1 over 4 (x − 6)
C. y − 6 = −4(x − (−2))
D. y − (−2) = −4(x − 6)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the given slope is 1/4 what's the perpendicular slope?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3flip the fraction: 1/4 > 4/1 = 4 flip the sign: 4 > 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so we plug these values into the point slope equation \[\Large y  y_1 = m(xx_1)\] \[\Large y  6 = 4(x(2))\]
