Perpendicular to y = -1/2x -3, passing through (0,0)


Expert Answer

Step 1

To determine the equation of the required straight line satisfying the given condtions

Step 2

Facts: The slope of a straight line with equation y=mx+c is m. Two straight lines are perpendicular if and only if the product of their slopes is -1.

Step 3

The slope of the given line is -1/2. Use the perpendicular condition to get the slope of the re...
