How do you write the equation in slope-intercept form of the line that is perpendicular to y=5x+6 but goes through the point (-5,-3)?
Please see the explanation.
Given a line with slope,
Therefore, a line that is perpendicular to
Start slope intercept form of the equation of a line:
Substitute -5 for x, -3 for y, and
Solve for b:
The equation of the line is:
