 Question 55118This question is from textbook : find an equation for the line with y-intercept 3 that is perpendicular to the line y=2/3x-4This question is from textbook Answer by rchill(405)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The slope of the perpendicular line will be the negative inverse of the slope of your line. Because your line's slope is , that means the perpendicular line's slope is . Using substitution into the formula y=mx+b, where b is the y-intercept, your equation becomes .
