Calculation: As the line of existing water pipe is passes through the points (0,3) and (-3,-1).
Therefore slope of line is 1330=43=43.
Let Slope of line of proposed water pipe is =m2.
As the line of proposed water pipe is perpendicular to existing water pipe line.
m1m2=1
43m2=1
m2=34
Equation of proposed water pipe is:
y0=34(x2)
4y=3x+6
3x+4y=6
Thus Equation of proposed water pipe is 3x+4y=6.
