Please help me solve this problem- Find an equation for the line perpendicular to 6x+2y=-2 having the same y-intercept as -4x-3y=6
The first equation can be rewritten as:
so the slope of the first line
The slope of a line perpendicular to it is
The second equation can be rewritten as:
so the y-intercept is -2.
From the above steps, there should be enough information to find the new line required using the slope-intercept form of equations.
