# How do you graph the line that passes through (-1,5) perpendicular to the graph #5x-3y-3=0#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

First, get the equation into the form

The gradient of the perpendicular line is the negative reciprocal of the original line. The gradient of the original line is

Put this into the equation

To find

The equation of the line is

Now for graphing.

You know the line passes through the point

You know that the y-intercept is

The gradient of the line is

Now you have 3 points, join them together and extend the line.
