Answer on Algebra Question for Kurt

Question #5949

Write an equation in standard form for the line perpendicular to y=-1/2x+2 and passes through (6,-3).

Expert's answer

Let's write the given equation in a form

x/2 + y = 2.

We see that the the direction vector of this line is

(1/2, 1).

Let's seek the perpendicular line in a form

ax + by = c.

It's direction vector is (a,b). As these two lines are perpendicular, we have that

(1/2, 1)*(a,b) =& a/2 + b = 0 ==> b = -a/2

We obtain

ax - ay/2 = c.

Let substitute point (6, -3):

6a& - a(-3)/2 = c

a:=1 ==> b = -1/2


6 + 3/2 = c


c = 7.5,


x& - y/2 = 15/2

and at last

2x - y = 15.

We have the equation of the line in standard form:

y = 2x - 15.

I'm very impressed with the work done. It was fast and efficient. I would order the work to be done and I would receive it the very next day, or even faster.
I'm extremely happy at the level of professionalism you guys do business. It keeps me relaxed, free and content knowing that you guys can complete the job.
One little thing I would like to add though. Sometimes the programmers deviate from the specifications of the assignment and that causes a little bit of a problem.
To reduce unnecessary 'sending emails to and from' all the time, it would be great of the programmer actually pays attention to every small detail in the specs.
Also, sometimes the prices are just too high. Being a student it gets a bit hard to pay for it.
Overall, I'm very happy with the service and have already recommended it to my friends. I'll be using your website again in the near future. Till then, keep up the good work guys!
