Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Epicteatime Hi again! I too am a bit confused as to what you are trying to find. :c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the equation for the line that passes through the given point and satisfies the given condition. And Hi jade :3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like, do I use the opposite slope? 3/1 since its perpendicular?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the line has to be perpendicular to y = 1 and it has to pass through the point 4,1 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have an X and the Y just plug in the numbers and then get the answer of Y = 1/15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then the equation for the line should be x = 4 It would be perpendicular to you, which is a horizontal line, and it would pass through 4,1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Unless there is another piece of info I should take into account?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0like if it was parallel, I could have used the slope from the line stuff that is given.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, Is the equation for Y \[y = \frac{ 1 }{ 3x+3 }\] ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your textbook should tell you though, the format in which you wrote it was a bit confusing, I thought y=1 at first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Y does equal 1 it says so in the point for the graph( 4,1)
