The slope of the line represented by the equation y = 3x - 2 is 3. The slope of the line perpendicular to y = 3x - 2 must be -1/3.

Since the slope = rise/run = - 1/3, we can find other points of that vertical line such as:

(0 - 3, 6 +1) = (-3, 7) which is above the point (0, 6)or
(0 + 3, 6 - 1) = (3, 5) which is below the point (0, 6).

In the same way we can find other points.

### What is the equation of a line that is perpendicular to and passes through the point (8 3)?

That depends on the equation that it is perpendicular too which has not been given but both equations will meet each other at right angles.

### Perpendicular to 2x plus 3y equals 8?

Perpendicular to 2x - 3y = 8 through the point ( 2, 1 ) (Perpendicular means the slopes are negative inverses of each other) 3x+2y = 8

### Two lines perpendicular to the same line are perpendicular to each other true or false?

TRUE:: The first two lines lie in the same plain, but are perpendicular to each other. The third line passes through the plane of the first two lines so it is also perpendicular. Think 3-dimension. !!!!!

### Is y equals 2x-6 and y equals one half plus 3 perpendicular to each other?

No but y = -1/2x+3 is perpendicular to y = 2x+6

### What is the slope and y-intercept of the line given by the equation y equals -5x?

The slope is -5. The x- and y-intercepts are both zero. In other words, it passes through the origin.

### What dos perpendicular mean?

Two lines are said to be perpendicular when they are at right angles. That means that the angle between them is 90 degrees.There are other meanings of perpendicular; for example, a line is said to be perpendicular to a plane when it is perpendicular to EVERY line of the plane that goes through the intersection.
