Linear equations

posted by .

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

  • Linear equations -

    The first equation can be rewritten as:
    so the slope of the first line
    is m=-3
    The slope of a line perpendicular to it is

    The second equation can be rewritten as:
    y=(-4/3)x -2
    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.
