The question was mentioned as y = - 14 9 + 11 , but I think it should have been y = - 14 9 x + 11 .
As the equation is already in slope intercept form, slope of this line is - 14 9 .
A line perpendicular to this will have slope of 9 14 , as product of slopes of two perpendicular lines is −1.
(In case the line is truly y = - 14 9 + 11 , it has zero slope and a line perpendicular to it will be parallel to y axis.

Let AMm×n(Q) and bQm. Suppose that the system of linear equations Ax=b has a solution in Rn. Does it necessarily have a solution in Qn?
and I thought I'd give an interesting, possibly wrong, approach to solving it. I'm not sure if such things can be done, if not maybe you can help me refine.
I considered the form of the equality as
A(1)x1++A(n)xn=b
where A(i) is a column vector of A. I then noticed that for xiRQ=T then, and this is where I think I'm doing something forbidden, each x has the represenation
x1=k11τ1++k1pτp
x2=k21τ1++k2pτp

xn=kn1τ1++knpτp,
where τi is a distinct irrational number, kijR, and p is the number of such distinct irrational numbers. I wound this out, but there may be a discrepancy with p and m. I feel this method can lead me to the answer, but I'm not sure where to go from here.
I end up getting something like this, I believe, after substitution:
A(k(1)τ1++k(p)τp)=b
Here, k(i) is the vector
((k1i),(),(kni)).
I think there is no discrepancy with p and m because AMm×n(Q),KMn×p(R), and τMp×1(T), so
(m×n)(n×p)(p×1)=m×1.

Suppose I have the linear equation
ax+by=c   (1)
where (a,b,c)R3. Let W={a,b,c)R3:(1) is consistent}.
Is W a subspace of R3?
Apparently the answer is no, but I am unable to find a counter-example. If anything, my reasoning (below) tells me W is a subspace.
1.(0,0,0)W.
2.If (a,b,c)W, then (αa,αb,αc)W for any non-zero αR
3. If (a,b,c),(a,b,c)W, then
(a+a,b+b,c+c)W

Problem: A metal plate whose temperature at the point (x,y) is given T(x,y)=2005x23xyy2. Given a function f(x,y), the vector f=<fx,fy> points in the direction of greatest increase for f.
Problem 1: Compute T(x,y)
Question 1: T(x,y)=<10x3y,3x2y>. Is it right?
Problem 2: Denote the position at time t by r(t)=(x(t),y(t)). We want r(t)=T(r(t)) for all t to ensure the temperature is increasing as much as possible. Interpret this equation as a system of linear ODEs with the form r=Ar
Question 2: not sure how to proceed.
