find the equation of a line that is perpendicular to the line y=1/6x+7 and contains the point (-5,0)

y=
(Type your answer in slope intercept form)

  • pre-cal -

    slope has to be -6 because it is -1/(1/6)
    note m' = -1/m

    so of form
    y = -6 x + b
    put the point in
    0 = -6 (-5) + b
    so
    b = -30
    then
    y = -6 x -30
