 Quadratic-relations-and-conic-sections/114530: Find the slope of the line that is perpendicular to 3x+2y=41 solutions Answer 83343 by checkley71(8403)   on 2007-12-04 15:56:54 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!3X+2Y=4 2Y=-3X+4 Y=-3X/2+4/2 Y=-3X/2+2 THIS LINE HAS A SLOPE OF -3/2. THEREFORE THE PERPENDICULAR LINE HAS A SLOPE EQUAL TO THE NEGATIVE RECIPRICAL OR THE LINE IT IS PERPENDICULAR TO (2/3).
 Coordinate-system/114572: equation of the line through points (6,-2) and perpendicular to the line 2x-3y=-71 solutions Answer 83342 by checkley71(8403)   on 2007-12-04 15:52:44 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!FIRST YOU NEED TO FIND THE SLOPE OF THE GIVEN LINE. Y=mX+b WHERE (m)=SLOPE. 2X-3Y=-7 -3Y=-2X-7 Y=-2X/-3-7/-3 Y=2X/3+7/3 THUS THIS SLOPE=2/3. A PERPENDICULAR LINE WOULD HAVE A SLOPE = TO THE NEGATIVE RECIPRICAL OF THIS SLOPE. THUS THE REQUIRED SLOPE=-3/2 FOR THE PERPENDICULAR LINE. USING THE LINE FORMULA Y=mX+b & SUBSTITUTING THE POINT (6,-2) & THE SLOPE=-3/2 YOU NEED TO SOLVE FOR b THE Y INTERCEPT. -2=-3/2*6+b -2=-18/2+b b=-2+9 b=7 SO THE LINE EQUATION IS: Y=-3X/2+7

L=2*10-8 L=20-8 L=12 ANSWER FOR THE LENGTH. PROOF: 44=2*10+2*12 44=20+24 44=44
 Equations/114568: The revenue for a sandwich shop is directly proportional to its advertising budget.When the owner spent \$2000 a month on advertising, the revenue was \$120,000. If the revenue is now \$180,000, how much is the owner spending on advertising? My question is this: what I know so far is that there is a difference of \$60,000 between the old and new revenues. Would I take the \$2000 and divide by that difference of \$60,000? Or am I just confusing myself here Thank You so much for your help, Barb Neely 1 solutions Answer 83336 by checkley71(8403)   on 2007-12-04 15:37:49 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A BETTER APPROACH IS THE FOLLOWING: 2,000/120,000=X/180,000 CROSS MULTIPLY. 120,000X=2,000*180,000 120,000X=360,000,000 X=360,000,000/120,000 X=\$3,000 ANSWER FOR THE AMOUNT OF ADVERTISING EXPENSE.
