User: A line passes through the point (–2, 4), and its y-intercept is (0, –6). What is the equation of the line that is perpendicular to the first line and passes through the point (5, –4)?

Weegy: The slope of a line is ?4 and its y-intercept is (0, 4). The equation of the line that is perpendicular to the first line and passes through (?8, 2) is y = 1/4x + 4.

if f(x) = 4x – 5 and g(x) = 3 – 2x, find f(x) + g(x). A. 2x – 2 B. 6x – 2 C. 2x – 8 D. 6x – 8
Weegy: f(x) = 4x - 5; g(x) = 6x - 3; F(x) - g(x) = 4x - 5 - (6x - 3); = 4x - 5 - 6x + 3; = -2x -2; (More)

if f(x) = 4x – 5 and g(x) = 3 – 2x,
f(x) + g(x) = (4x - 5) + (3 - 2x) = 4x - 5 + 3 - 2x = 2x - 2
