# What is the equation of the line perpendicular to #y=-3/7x # that passes through # (5,7) #?

##### 1 Answer

#### Answer:

#### Explanation:

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:
