What is the equation of the line which is perpendicular to #2x+y=-4# which passes through the point #(2,-8)?#
Given equation :
We rewrite this in Slope-Intercept form, that is;
The slope in this equation's case is
Therefore, the slope of a line that is perpendicular to this line is going to be the negative reciprocal of the given slope.
The y-intercept can be determined from the coordinates provided.
Substitute the values of the x and y coordinate in its Slope-Intercept form to determine the
Therefore, the equation of the line is
