 Question 178465: A line passing through (2, -4) and (-4, y) is perpendicular to a line with slope 3/2. What is the value of y?Answer by josmiceli(9686)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Given 1 point and the slope of a line I can find the equation of that line (2,-4) is a point on the line If is the slope, is perpendicular to the line with that slope The general slope-intersect form of a line is So far I have To determine I use the given point The equation of the line is To find the in (-4,y), answer
