Lines A and B are perpendicular and have the same x-intercept. The equation of line A is x+2y-4=0. Determine the y-intercept of line B.

    slope of given line = -1/2
    so slope of perpendicular line = +2

    x-intercept of given line, let y = 0
    x-intercept is (4,0)

    so new line: slope = 2, point (4,0) on it
    y = 0 = 2(x-4)
    y = 2x - 8

    y-intercept of new line is -8 or (0, -8)
