Find the equation

Answer :


Given: The given line is 3x + 5y = 4. The perpendicular line has an x - intercept of - 3.


Formula to be used: The product of slopes of two perpendicular lines = - 1.


The slope of this line is .


the slope of the perpendicular line =


The equation of the line can be written in the form


(c is the y - intercept)


This line intercepts the x - axis when y = 0.


So, the x - intercept:


Now, it is given that the x - intercept is - 3.


i.e. c = 5


The required equation of the line is


i.e. 5x - 3y + 15 = 0
