3x-4y-6 = 0

y=-x

It is the equation of a straight line in the form of: y = 2x+4

There is no name for it except "A line perpendicular to a line segment and passing through its midpoint".

y = 2.25x -6

5x - 10 = -20This equation can be restated as 5x = -10 : x = -2This is the equation of a straight line perpendicular to the x axis and passing through the point x = -2. There is no y intercept and the slope is indeterminate.

Without an equality sign and not knowing the plus or minus values of y and 7 it can't be considered to be a straight line equation therefore finding its perpendicular equation is impossible.

Known equation: 5x -2y = 3 or y = 5/2x -3/2 Slope of equation: 5/2 Slope of perpendicular equation: -2/5 Perpendicular equation: y --4 = -2/5(x -3) => 5y = -2x -14 Perpendicular equation in its general form: 2x+5y+14 = 0

What is the equation of the vertical line passing through (-5,-2)

The equation will be perpendicular to the given equation and have a slope of 3/4:- Perpendicular equation: y--3 = 3/4(x--2) => 4y--12 = 3x--6 => 4y = 3x-6 Perpendicular equation in its general form: 3x-4y-6 = 0

2y+x+5 = 0

Known equation: 5x-2y = 3 or y = 5/2x -3/2 Slope of known equation: 5/2 Slope of perpendicular equation: -2/5 Perpendicular equation: y- -4 = -2/5(x-3) => 5y =-2x-14 Perpendicular equation in its general form: 2x+5y+14 = 0

Perpendicular lines passing through a point are at right angles to each other.

Perpendicular to a line passing through the center of the Earth.

Y=4x+3

It is a straight line equation with a slope of 5/4 or 1.25

y = 1/3x+4/3

Slope: -35 passing through (-5, -1) Equation: y = -35x-176

Given a straight line joining the points A and B, the perpendicular bisector is a straight line that passes through the mid-point of AB and is perpendicular to AB.

The line "x = 6" will be perpendicular to any line "y = C", where C is any constant. That means that the line which is perpendicular to "x=6" and passes through [-4, 5] will be "y = 5"

The straight line equation would depend on the slope which has not been given.

If you mean: (9, -12) then the equation is y = -12 which is a straight line parallel to the x axis passing through (0, -12)

The perpendicular bisector of a line segment AB is the straight line perpendicular to AB through the midpoint of AB.

It does not have a specific name.

For a straight line equation to be parallel to another straight line equation they both must have the same slopes but different y intercepts.
