Write the equation of the line containing (-3,4) and perpendicular to y = 2/3x + 2.
Write your answer in slope-intercept form.

Not sure how to do this one.

m = -3/2

y = mx + b

y - 4 = -3/2 (x-4)

am i on the right track?

would I add 4 to the y side to make the 4 cancel out so is by itself?

where do i put +2?

    No.

    Y=mx+b
    4=-3/2 (-3)+b
    solve for b. then put it into this:
    y=-3/2 x + b
