##### 2 Answers

**The equation of line in slope-intercept form is**

#### Explanation:

Slope of the line,

is

The product of slopes of the pependicular lines is

Equation of line in slope-intercept form is

#### Explanation:

The given equation

is in slope-vertex form with

slope

y-intercept

If a line has a slop of

then every line perpendicular to it has a slope of

Therefore all lines perpendicular to

will have a slope of

and will have an equation in slope-intercept form:

If

then

Therefore the resolved equation for the given line is
