Let line L1 be the graph of 5x + 8y = -9. Line L2 is perpendicular to line L1 and passes through the point (10,10). If line L2 is the graph of the equation y=mx +b, then find m+b.

By using point-slope form, we get that m + b = -7/3.

Hello Guest!

$$L1\\ 5x + 8y = -9\\ y=-\frac{5}{8}x-\frac{9}{8}$$

$$\color{blue}m=-\frac{1}{-\frac{5}{8}}\\ \color{blue}m=1.6$$

$$L2\\ y=mx +b\\ P(10,10)\\ 0=1.6\cdot 10+b\\ b=10-1.6\cdot 10$$

$$\color{blue}b=-6\\ y=1.6x-6$$

$$m+b=-4.4$$
