 Question 623397: find the equation of a line that is perpendicular to the line y=1/2+2 and contains the point (-5,0)Answer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!find the equation of a line that is perpendicular to the line y=1/2+2 and contains the point (-5,0) --------- y=1/2+2 y = 2.5 That's parallel to the x-axis, or "horizontal" ------- Lines perpendicular are "vertical", so the x value is constant --> x = -5
