Write the equation of the line in standard form:
(-3, 6); m = 1/2
(1, 0) & (-5, 3)
Write the equation of the line perpendicular to 4x – 5y = -10 through the point(2, 3). Write the equation in slope intercept form.

    I am not doing the first line fits because they are the same method as I did for you a few minutes ago.
    now
    4 x - 5 y = -10
    put that in slope intercept form to find the slope
    5 y = 4 x + 10
    y = (4/5) x + 2
    slope = (4/5)
    slope of perpendicular = -1/(4/5) = -5/4
    so
    y = -(5/4) x + b
    3 = -(5/4)(2) + b
    b = 6/2 + 5/2
    b = 11/2
    so
    y = (-5/4) x + 11/2
