How do you write an equation (a) in slope intercept form and (b) in standard form for the line passing through (1,8) and perpendicular to 2x+5y=1?
Please see the explanation.
To make any line that is perpendicular to a line in standard form:
Swap "a" and "b" and, if "b" was negative then make it positive, otherwise, change the sign of "a". Therefore, a line that is perpendicular to:
Will have the form:
To make it pass through the point
The standard form is
The slope intercept form is
