The line through (2, 5), perpendicular to y = -7/3x-1

Question: Write an equation in slope intercept form.

  • College Algebra -

    if perpendicular than the slope is
    + 3/7
    because it has to be -1/slope of original.
    so
    It has to look like
    y = (3/7) x + b
    now put that point in to find b
    5 = (3/7) (2) + b
