slopeinterpept form of the line satisfying the specified conditions: through (15, 49) and perpendicilar to 5x+8y=48
asked by
d

The slope of the given line is 5/8
so the slope of our line is +8/5 and the equation starts
y = (8/5)x + b
but (15,49) is on it, so
49 = (8/5)(15) + b
49 = 24 + b
b = 25
equation: y = (8/5)x  25
