 Question 730119: Can someone help me with this please??? Write the slope intercept form of the line that pass through point A(-5,9) and is perpendicular to the line with equation 2y-3x+5=0Found 2 solutions by Alan3354, josmiceli:Answer by Alan3354(34677)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Write the slope intercept form of the line that pass through point A(-5,9) and is perpendicular to the line with equation 2y-3x+5=0 ------------- Find the slope of the line, m1 2y-3x+5=0 Put it into slope-intercept form (solve for y) y = (3/2)x - 5/2 m1 = 3/2 ------ The slope of lines perpendicular is the negative inverse = -2/3 m = -2/3 --- Use y = mx + b and the point to find b, the y-intercept 9 = (-2/3)*-5 + b b = 17/3 --> y = (-2/3)x + 17/3 is the equation Answer by josmiceli(10616)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!First put this equation in the slope intercept form Any line perpendicular to this one will have slope = where (-5.9) Use the point-slope formula Multiply both sides by check answer: (-5,9) OK
