y = 1 2 x - 7
okay this equation is already in slope intercept form:
y=mx+b where m = slope and b = y-intercept
The formula for a perpendicular slope is - 1 m
so your slope is 1 2 applying the formula:
- 1 1 2 = - 2

Find the slope of a line perpendicular to the line 3x−y=8
asked 2022-02-16
General form of linear equation using two variables I always read can be written:
Ax+By+c=0
where A and B cannot both be 0.
So does it means like 1x+0y+c=0
is a linear equation of two variables i.e basically what I am asking is that both A and B cannot be zero but can either A or B be 0 like:
0x+4y5=0 or 3x+0y15=0
Are the above equation a Linear equation of 2 variables?
Need your help!

How to solve 97 x 1 mod 61 in a quick way?
I tried to solve it in the Diophantine equation form 97 x + 61 y = 1 by using Euclidean algorithm and got the sample result of x = 22 and y = 35.
However, the calculation took me quite long to do it, even if I was highly concentrated it would still take me 5−7 min to solve.
I want to ask whether we had any other way to quickly solve these kind of linear congruence equations?
