What is the equation in standard form of a perpendicular line that passes through (5,1)
1 Answer | Add Yours
Let line `L_1` posses through (5,1) has slope m.
Thus any line `L_2` passes through (5,1) and perpendicular to `L_1` has slope (-1/m).
Thus equation of line `L_2` is
which is standard form of equation of line.
