 Question 368769: 2x+4y=-10;(4,2) write equation of a line that is perpendicular to the given line and that passes through the given pointAnswer by robertb(4012)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!The unknown line would have the form 4x-2y = c, where c is an undetermined constant. To find c use the coordinates of the given point: 4*4 - 2*2 = 16 - 4 = 12. Therefore the equation of the line is 4x-2y = 12.
