How do I turn this equation into a perpendicular and parallel line in standard form?
I had to turn the equation, y - 3 = 3 (x + 1), into a perpendicular line that passes through (5,-1) and I got y = -1/3x + 2/3. Would the standard form of this be 1x + 3y = 2? I then have to find the x-intercept of this. The parallel line passes through (0,-3) and I got y = 3x + -3 but I do not know the standard form. On the paralell line, I also have to find the ordered pair where x = 2.
