26. ## math

Determine which tow equations represent perpendicular line. (a) y= 3/8 x -4 (b) y= 4x - 3/8 (c) y= - 1/4 x + 3/8 (d) y= 1/4 x - 3/8 b and c. Perpendicular lines have slopes which are negative reciprocals of each other. So 4 and -1/4 work.

27. ## math/algebra1a

Write the equation of the line passing through (-3, -5)and (3,0). (a)y= -6/5x - 5/2 (b)y= 5/6x - 5/2 (c)y= 5/6 x + 2/5 (d)y= -6/5x + 2/5 You have to get the slope of the line using equation y2-y1/x2-x1. [0-(-5)]/[3-(-3)] = 5/6 Now that you have the slope,

28. ## math/algebra1a

write the equation of the line with x-intercept (-7, 0) na d undefined slope. a) y= -7 b) x= -7 c) y= -7x d) x= 0 The answer is b. This is because an undefined slope is m/0. So, its just a vertical line. Since x=-7, that's the line.

29. ## math/algebra1a

write the equation of the line which has y-intercept (0,5) and is perpendicular to the line with equation y=-3x +1 a) y=-3x + 5 b) y= 1/3x + 5 c) y= 3x + 5 d) y= -1/3x + 5 The slope of the 2nd equation is -3...because the equation of a line is y=mx+b,

30. ## math/algebra

find the slope of any line perpendicular to the line through points (6,7) and (5,8). a)-1 b)1 c)0 d)undefined y2-y1/x2-x1 = slope So...(8-7)/5-6) = 1/-1 = -1 The slope perpendicular to that would be the negative reciprocal of -1, which is 1. Therefore, the
