What is the equation of the line perpendicular to #y=-7/5 # that passes through # (-35,5) #?
Firstly, let's go over what we already know from the question. We know that the
Our new equation passes through
In our point,
The line that is perpendicular to
Here's a graph of both lines.
Any straight line perpendicular to this line should be parallel to y-axis and can be represented by the equation
Since the line whose equation to be determined passes through(-35,5) and is parallel to y-axis, it will be at a distance -35 unit from y-axis. Hence its equation should be
