# The perpend

Given points are origin (0, 0) and (-2, 9).

We know that slope, m =

We know that two non-vertical lines are perpendicular to each other if and only if their slopes are negative reciprocals of each other.

m = (-1/m) =

We know that the point (x, y) lies on the line with slope m through the fixed point (x0, y0), if and only if, its coordinates satisfy the equation y – y0 = m (x – x0)

y 9 = (2/9) (x (-2))

9(y 9) = 2(x + 2)

9y 81 = 2x + 4

2x + 4 9y + 81 = 0

2x 9y + 85 = 0

Ans. The equation of line is 2x – 9y + 85 = 0.
