what is the slope of the line that has the equation 4x+2y=12?
the slope of the line is -4
2y = 6x - 8y = 3x - 4========m(slope) = 3=========
The slope of the line of 2x plus 2y equals 7 is (7/2x - 1).
4x+2y-8=0 2y=8-4x y=4-2x slope= -2
4x+2y = 6 2y = -4x+6 y = -2x+3 Perpendicular slope is 1/2
Get the slope of the given line, by putting it into slope-intercept form. Then you can divide minus one by this slope, to get the slope of any perpendicular line.
16X - 2Y = 4- 2Y = - 16X + 4Y = 8X - 2---------------m(slope) = 8===========
7x-2y = 14 -2y = -7x+14 y = 3.5x-7
