My hardest question, open-ended plzz help.
Write an equation of the line that is perpendicular to y=2x+3 and passes through (3,4)

Hi again Joe;
This equation is in the slope-intercept form of...
m is the slope.
b is the y-intercept, the value of y when x=0.
The slope of the perpendicular line is -1/2.
Let's plug-in the slope of -1/2 as well as the one point provided.
However, let's NOT use the slope-intercept form but rather the point-slope formula...
Let's add 4 to both sides...
