**Reiny**, Friday, January 6, 2012 at 9:23amslope of 12th street = -4

so slope of Ave J = 1/4

so now you have m and a point

new equation:

y = (1/4)x + b

but (8,16) lies on it

16 = (1/4)(8) + b

16 = 2 + b

b = 14

y = (1/4)x + 14

In my class the question would have been worded this way:

Find the equation of the perpendicular to y = -4x +3, which passes through (8,16)
