How do you write Equation of a line that goes through (8,5) and is perpendicular to 2x-y=7 in slope intercept form and standard form?
The slope of
So the slope of the required line is
(the slopes of perpendicular lines are the negative inverse of each other)
We are looking for a line with slope
In slope-point form this is
Converting to slope intercept form:
and in standard form
