The Line y2 perpendicular to Line y1, has as slope : -3.
y2 = -3x + b.
Find b by writing that Line y2 passing at point (2, 1):
1 = -3(2) = b -> b = 1 + 6 = 7
Line y2 = -3x + 7.

I have a set of linear equations, of the form Ax=b . However, the value of b depends on the sign of the solution of x, such that
bi=ci+di if xi>0, and bi=cidi if xi<0.
I could solve this by trying each combination of positiveness of x, but that would require solving 2N sets of linear equations, which becomes unfeasible quite quickly.
Is this solvable analytically?

How can we derive the standard form of the linear equation:
Ax+By+C=0? What do "A", "B" and "C" in the standard form of the linear equation mean? As in the point-slope form of the linear equation:
yy0=m(xx0), m is the slope, and x, y are the coordinates of any point. Likewise,x0,y0, are the coordinates of the given point.
