Arthur is trying to find the equation of a perpendicular to y = '1 over 4 x + 4 in slope-intercept 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)

flip the fraction: 1/4 ----> 4/1 = 4 flip the sign: 4 ----> -4

  • jim_thompson5910
original slope: +1/4 perpendicular slope: -4/1 or -4
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
does that seem familiar from the lesson?

Yes.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so m = -4
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
the given point is (x1,y1) = (-2,6)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so we plug these values into the point slope equation \[\Large y - y_1 = m(x-x_1)\] \[\Large y - 6 = -4(x-(-2))\]

So is it D?

  • jim_thompson5910
we could keep going but we can stop here because there is an answer choice that has this

I can't tell if it's B or D.
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
look closely and compare what I have with the choices
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
hopefully you see how I got that

  • anonymous
It seems like it's D, am I right?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you mixed up 2 terms. Look closer
anonymous
  • anonymous
So it's B?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
it sounds like you're randomly guessing
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
like I said, look for the one that matches with \[\Large y - 6 = -4(x-(-2))\]

Ohhh C....I'm sorry my internet wasn't working.
