Find the equation of the line with y intercept 2 and perpendicular to the line y = 2/3x -4

• Algebra -

so you want the equation of the line

y=-3/2 x + b
intercept is when x is zero, so b=2

• Algebra -

so it would not be a -b? so it would be 3/2x + 2?

• Algebra -

2 = -3/2(0) + b

2 = b

y = mx + b

y = -3/2x + 2
