## A line is perpendicular to y = 4x – 2 and intersects the point (4, -11). What is the equation of this perpendicular line?<

Question

A line is perpendicular to y = 4x – 2

and intersects the point (4, -11).

What is the equation of this

perpendicular line?

y = – 3x + [?]

Hint: Use the Point-Slope Form: y – y1 = m(x – X1)

Then write the equation in slope-intercept form.

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:If a line is perpendicular to a line that has slope m, then the slope of the line is -1 / m.

in this case,

∴ by comparing with

the slope of the perpendicular line is

use the point-slope form:

the equation of the perpendicular line is
