What is the equation "in slope-intercept form" of the line perpindicular to the segment between (1,3) and (5,5) and passing through (3,4)
Standard form for a straight line: y=mx+b, m=slope, b=y-intercept
Slope of line segment between (1,3) and (5,5)=∆y/∆x=(5-3)/5-1=2/4=1/2
Slope of line perpendicular to line segment=-2 (negative reciprocal)
Equation of line: y=-2x+b
solving for b using given point line passes thru, (3,4)
