Homework Help: algebra 3

Posted by Darius Graham on Thursday, January 11, 2007 at 7:08pm.

what is the equation of the line with {3,3} and is perpendicular to the line y= negative 2x plus 3

The slope of the line is -2. The slope of a line perpendicular to this one must be its negative reciprocal, or 1/2.

Use the point-slope form to find the other line:

y - y1 = m(x - x1) -->point-slope form

y - 3 = 1/2(x - 3)

Can you take it from here to finish?

I hope this will help.
