1.Find the equation of the line perpendicular to x−5y=15 that passes through the point (−2,5)

2.Find the equation perpendicular to the line y=−3x+5 that passes through point (2, 6).

Plz help me I've been working on this for hours

I will give you a hint,

whenever an equation is perendicular, it has the NEGATIVE RECIPROCAL of the original slope.

This is an example problem:

**y = 2x + 9 and passes through ( 4, 2)?**

So new slope is 2 => -1/2

y = -1/2x + b

2 = -4/2 + b (Plug in coordinates (4, 2)

4 = b

So the equation is y = -1/2x + 4
