Hi,

I'm yet again having trouble grasping this concept. I've been given the point: (7/8, 3/4) and the equation 5x + 3y = 0. Now from this information I need to find equations of lines that are :

(a) parallel to the given line

and then

(b) perpendicular to the given line

How can one approach this problem and solve down for the equations of the lines?

Thank you yet again.
