If a line has slope =m
then the slope of a line perpendicular to it is ( - 1 m )

Rewrite 5 x + 3 y = 8 in a slope-offset format

y = - 5 3 x + 8 3
So the given equation has a slope of ( - 5 3 )
and
a line perpendicular to it has a slope of ( 3 5 )

The slope of a linear equation of the form Ax+By+C=0 (general form) is given by AB. Could someone intuitively explain why we use this formula?
I've read that this is because the coefficient of x (coefficient of y) represent the "speed" at which x (y) increases and thus we can get the slope by dividing the "speed of x" by the "speed of y" - but I'm afraid it's not very intuitive to me.
Why do we use this formula and how is this equivalent to the more general slope formula,
slope=change in ychange in x

The following question seems to me interesting. it gives solution space and required the corresponding system of equation. The question is the following:
Consider the vectors in R 4 defined by
a 1 = ( 1 , 0 , 1 , 2 ), a 2 = ( 3 , 4 , 2 , 5 ), a 3 = ( 1 , 4 , 0 , 9 )
Find a system of homogeneous linear equations for which the space of solutions is exactly subspace of R 4 spanned by the three given vectors.
First i check the linear independence of the given vectors to see form of the generated space. But after determining i only obtained the result that the rank of the coefficient matrix of the corresponding homogeneous system of equations is 2. i obtained this result by rank-nullity theorem. But i can't go further. Please help.
Thanks in advance...

Correct me if I am wrong. Find the value(s) of the constant k such that the system of linear equations
{ x + 2 y = 1 k 2 x 2 k y = k + 2
has:
1. No solution
2. An infinite number of solutions
3. Exactly one solution
Answer:
so the first step is to get row reduction form, which is:
from [ 1 2 k 2 2 k ] ,
to [ 1 2 0 2 k + 2 k 2 ]
