Write an equation, in slope-intercept form, of the line that is perpendicular to y = 2x - 5 and passes through the point (2, -3).

#1**+1 **

y = 2x - 5 this is form y = mx+b m = slope = 2 perpidicular is -1 / 2

y = -1/2 x + b sub in the given point to find 'b'

-3 = -1/2(2) + b b = -2

y = -1/2x -2
