Homework Help: Geometry

Posted by Heather on Monday, November 9, 2009 at 5:08pm.

Write an equation for the line perpendicular to line XY that contains point Z.

line XY: 3x + 2y = -6, Z(3,2)

I realize that the slope of a perpendicular line is the opposite reciprocal of the first line. But, how do I use point Z in this problem? Thank you.
