How do you write the slope-intercept equation for the line that is perpendicular to the line #-5x + 2y = 16# and passes through the point #(5, 7)#?
Add 5x to both sides:
Divide both sides by 2:
We can observe that the slope of the line
The slope-intercept form is:
To find the value of b, substitute in the point
The equation is:
