For 2 perpendicular lines, product of slopes is -1.
Slope of AB is
This line passes through (2,3).
The equation of AB is
If AB passes through the point (2,3) and is perpendicular to y= 2x-7, find the equation of AB in general form.
Please either provide the process of doing so, or help me work through it. Anything would be appreciated. I know it’s probably quite simple, but I can’t seem to understand this problem. Thank you for your help!
Well, it is certainly strange to know that we have not done that in class. Maybe the teacher is attempting to challenge us? I do not know. I have researched the general form, and thus obtained the following formula: ax + by = C
Can you explain how to do this operation please?
Thank you Alex. It is beyond me why I have not learnt that, seeing as it is essential to do so. No wonder why I couldn't do it!
Anyway, I have researched the conversion of the two forms now, and hopefully I won't have that trouble in the future.
Thank you once again!
