Write an equation of the line that passes through (2,3) and is perpendicular to the line defined by x-5y=-4. Write the answer in slope-intercept form (if possible) and in standard form (Ax+By=C) with smallest integer coefficients. Use the "Cannot be written" button, if applicable.


Expert Answer

Step 1

Consider the given equation of line:

x-5y = -4   …. (1)

write this equation in slope-intercept form:


Image Transcriptionclose

14 y =_x+- 5 5

Step 2

On comparing with the general form y=mx+c, we wiil get slope m=1/5.

Since, the required line is perpendicular to the line(1), therefore,

The slope of required line is m1= - ...
