Write the equation of the line satisfiying the givrn geometric conditions.


L has y-intercept (0, 2) and is perpendicular to the line with equation 2x-3y=6


Here is my answer please check.
-2/3x-2

I can see it is wrong just by looking at the slope. The perpendicular line has a slope of 2/3, which means that L must have the negative reciprocal of that slope, or m= -3/2
