# What is an equation of the line that is perpendicular to y-3 =-4(x+2)​

or choose any line with slope 1/4

Step-by-step explanation:

The slope of this line is -4. The slope of the line perpendicular to this line will be the negative reciprocal or 1/4.

Write the equation using the slope m=1/4 and the point slope form.

This is the equation of the line that is perpendicular and passes through the same point (-2,3) as the equation listed.

where can be any number.

Step-by-step explanation:

First we need to clear for y:

and now we have an equation of the form:

where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

in this case and

to find and equation perpendicular to this line, the following must be true:

where m is the slope of the original line that i just mentioned, and is the slope of the new line. Substituting

clearing for

thus, the new perpendicular line must have the form:

where the y-intecept can be any number, some examples are:

and so on, the important thing to be a perpendicular line is that the slopes are related to the equation .

It's the parallelogram. Therefore

ML = JK, JM = KL, m∠L = m∠J, m∠M = m∠K and m∠M + m∠L = 180°.

ML = 21 → JK = 21

JM = 29 → KL = 29

m∠L = 127° → m∠J = 127°

m∠M + m∠L = 180° → m∠M + 127° = 180° → m∠M = 53°

m∠M = 53° → m∠K = 53°

the answer to the equation should be in cents whereas it is in dollars which would be incorrect

Step-by-step explanation:

Which equation is identity? A.) 11-(2v+3)=-2v-8
B.) 5w+8-=6w-2 (w-4)
C.) 7m-2=8m+4-m
D.) 8y+9=8y-3

The answer to the question is b.

A farmer has four plots of land,each with an area of 12 acres. He divides them into a number of parts each with an area of 8/9 of an acre how many parts are there on the four plots of land

The number of parts on the four plots are 40.5

Step-by-step explanation:

The number of plots is 4 and each has an area of 12 acres, thus the total area is 36 acres.

Dividing them into a number, n, of parts gives;

where n is the number of parts.

= of an acre

Thus,

n = (36 × 9) acres ÷ 8 acres

=  324 ÷ 8

= 40.5

Thus it has been divided into 40.5 parts.

total there are 54 parts. however, there are 13 1/2 parts on each plot.
