Homework Help: algebra

Posted by chris on Friday, March 14, 2008 at 1:31pm.

I am looking for a perpendicular line. I'd appreciate ir if you could tell me if I'm on the right track. I am given y=-5x + 4 and know that a perpendicular line passes through (3,5). I think the slope of this line would be 1/5 so it would go up (rise) 1, so the y point would be 6 and it would go over 5 places so x would be 8. I have to come up with the perpendicular line using slope intercept notation. Am I even close? Thanks!!!
