How do you determine the equation of the line that is perpendicular or parallel to a given line, through a given point?
2x -y =15; (3, 7)
The line parallel to 2x-y =15 is
This passes through (3,7)
The line is 2x-y=-1
or y = 2x+1
The line perpendicular will be having slope (-1/2)
The line is
2y-14 = -(x-3)
2y = -x +3+14
y = -0.5x +8.5
or y= -1/2 *x +17/2
