The graph of which of the following will be perpendicular to the graph of y = 2x – 4?
A.
2x + y = 4
B.
4x – 2y = 4
C.
y = –2x + 8
D.
2x + 4y = 1 **Weegy:** The graph of which of the following will be perpendicular to the graph of y = 2x ? 4? D. 2x + 4y = 1 **User:** Two perpendicular lines intersect at the origin. If the slope of the first line is 3, what is the equation of the second line? **Weegy:** Two perpendicular lines intersect at the origin. If the slope of the first line is -1/2 the equation of the second line is y = 2x. **User:** Which of the following equations is an example of a line written in slope-intercept form?
A.
y = mx + b
B.
x = my + b
C.
mx = y + b
D.
mx + by = c **User:** Which of the following equations is an example of the general form of the equation of a line in standard form?
A.
y = mx + b
B.
Ax = By + C
C.
By = Ax + C
D.
Ax + By = C **Weegy:** The following equation that is an example of the general form of the equation of a line in standard form is D. Ax + By = C? **User:** Write the equation of the line that passes through (4, 2) and is parallel to the line y = 2x – 1.
A.
x – y = 6
B.
2x – y = 6
C.
2x – y = 1
D.
2x – y = –1 **Weegy:** The equation of the line that passes through the points ( 2, 2) and (0, 5)is B. y = 3/2x + 5 **User:** A company's monthly profit increases by $1,000 each month. In January, the profit of the company was $25,000. If x = 0 represents January, which of the following equations represents the profit as a function of time (in months)? (More)
