 Question 520792: find equestion of the line which is perpindicular the line y=5x+9 and has y-intercept=6Answer by Maths68(1474)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! find equestion of the line which is perpindicular the line y=5x+9 and has y-intercept=6 Given y=5x+9 Compare above equatoin with Standard Equation of the Straight line y=mx+b Slope m = 5 Since lines are perpendicular, multiplication of their slopes will result in (-1) therefore slope of the required line is (-1/5) and we have been given y-intercept 6 of the required line y=-(1/5)x+6 y=-x/5+6 Above equation is the equatoin of the required line. Red line = Given Line Green line = Required Line
