did you get the equation of the perpendicular line wrong?

so the slope of the line going through the 2 points is correct

I'm not sure he wasn't very clear. Could we solve it from the beginnig?
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
you need the equation but you only put the slope
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
so we need to see if there is any y-intercept
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
\(y=-1x+b\)
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
we can use (-3,2) \(2=-1*-3+b\\2=-3+b\\5=b\)

  • anonymous
ok
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks. :)
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
so y=-1x+5
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
now we need the perpendicular equation
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
so the slope will be the negative reciprocal -1 = 1/1 = 1 so slope = 1

  • anonymous
oh thats right I forgot about that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ok
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
so y=1x+b
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
use the ordered pair (-6,1) \(1=1*-6+b\\1=-6+b\\7=b\\y=x+7\)
Mehek14
  • Mehek14
thats the equation for the perpendicular line
