I have a triangle ABC. The slope of AB is -1/ab, the slope of AC is -1/ac, and the slope of BC is -1/ac. My question is, I have 3 lines: Altitude from A to BC, altitude from B to AC, and altitude from C to AB. I know their slope because it is just -1/slope. But I want to know ...

bobpursley. i'm still questioning the problem states find the slope of any line perpendicualr to the line through points (3,3) and (2,8). y= (8-3)/(2-3) the slope i get is. (5)/(-1) for the first slope now to get any line perpendicular to the line through the same points. My ...

**Calculus: for mathmate**

Find the slope of the tangent line to the graph of the given function at any point: 1. f(x)= 13 I understand that you said the tangent to the line is the coefficient of x, but what would be the slope of this problem. For problems like this are there specific steps to take?

I'm confused on two questions that are kind of similiar: State the slope and y-intercept of y= -1/2x I know the slope is -1/2 but I don't know the y-intercept State the slope and y-intercept of y= 3x-4 I know the slope is 3, but I don't know if the y-intercept is 4 or -4.
