 Question 624723: What is an equation of the line that passes through the point (−5,0) and is perpendicular to the line 5x−2y=16. Express your answer in slope-intercept form.Answer by solver91311(18785)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Take the negative of the coefficient on in the given equation divided by the coefficient on to calculate the slope of the given equation. Use the point-slope form of an equation of a line: where are the coordinates of the given point and is the calculated slope. Simplify and solve for , putting your equation into form.
