Write an equation of the line containing the given point and perpendicular to the given line.
(8,-6); 3x+5y=8. The equation of the line is y=
Here is what I have: 3x+5y=8 5y=-3x+8
y= -3/5(x)+8/5 y=5/3(x)=b -5=5/3(5)+b
-5=25/3+b -15=25+3b
-40=3b b= -40/3= -13 1/3 y= 5/3(x)-13 1/3
Is this correct? If not could you please show me where I went wrong? Thanks.
