What is the equation of the line perpendicular to #y=-3/7x # that passes through # (5,7) #?
So, the line we need to determine is
Since the line given is in
Then, we calculate the
Now, we have our slope of our new line. We are also given a point, so we can use
Doing so yields:
Now, this is an acceptable form of a line. But since the question gives you a line in
Converting this line to slope intercept, we get:
