Which equation is the equation of a line that passes through (-10. 3) and is perpendicular to #y=5x-7#?
I assume there is a typo and the problem should be:
write the equation of a line that passes through
Perpendicular lines have slopes which are negative reciprocals. In other words, take the reciprocal of the slope and change the sign.
The negative reciprocal of
To find the equation of a line which passes through
To put the equation in slope-intercept form, distribute the
Add 3 to both sides.
