 Question 279245: graph the line which passes through the point (6,-1) and is perpendicular to the line with equation 2x-6y=-14Answer by stanbon(57967)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!graph the line which passes through the point (6,-1) and is perpendicular to the line with equation 2x-6y=-14 --- The given line has a slope = 1/3 --- Any perpendicular line must have a slope of -3. ---------------- Form: y = mx + b You know m = 1/3 and y = -1 when x = 6; solve for "b": -1 = (1/3)(6) + b -1 = 2 + b b = -3 ------------------- Ans: y = -3x -3 ======================= Cheers, Stan H.
