Write the equation of a line perpendicular to y=3x-2, that passes through the point (6, 2)?
The slopes of perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals of each other. (So, negative, and flip the fraction.) Since the slope of
Now, writing the second equation in slope-intercept form, with
To find that second
Now you've got the slope and the y-intercept for your perpendicular line!
