Q:
# Write an equation of the line passing through point p that is perpendicular to the given line. p(3,1), y=13x−5

Accepted Solution

A:

You know two lines y=ax+b and y=mx+n that are perpendicular, so we have the product a*m=-1

+ This line is perpendicular to y=13x-5, so it has equation: y=-1/13x+b

+ And it passes through the point (3;1), so we have x=3, y=1. So 1=-1/13 *3+b

and b= 1+3/13= 16/13

And we have y=-1/13x+16/13
