 Question 475995: Can you show me how to solve the following? It says write an equation of the line that goes through the point (-8,7) and is perpendicular to the line -4x+3y=11.Answer by Tatiana_Stebko(1410)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Find the slope of the given line , the slope is Perpendicular lines are lines whose slopes are negative reciprocals of one another, then the slope of the line that we have to find The point-slope form of a line uses a point (x1,y1) and a slope (m), to write the equation of a line. This form is given by the equation: Point (-8,7) substitue into formula , ; multiply by 4
