 Question 176903: find the equation of the line that is perpendicular to 3y=4x-12 and passes through the x interceptAnswer by Fombitz(13828)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Change the first equation to slope intercept form, The x-intercept of this line is, Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals of each other, . . . Use the point-slope form with slope (-3/4) and point (3,0) to generate the second line, in general form . . . Graph the lines to check the solution,
