One of the forms of the equation of a straight line is y = mx + c where m represents the gradient and c , the y-intercept.

the line $y=-\frac{5}{9}x$

is in this form with c = 0 and m = $-\frac{5}{9}$

When 2 lines are perpendicular then the product of their gradients :

${m}_{1}{m}_{2}=-1$

The gradient of the perpendicular line is : $-\frac{5}{9}\times {m}_{2}=-1$

$\Rightarrow {m}_{2}=-\frac{1}{-\frac{5}{9}}=\frac{9}{5}$

equation : y - b = m(x - a ) , m = $\frac{9}{5},(a,b)=(-7,3)$

$\Rightarrow y-3=\frac{9}{5}(x-7)$

multiply both sides by 5 to eliminate fraction : $5y-15=9x-63$

equation of perpendicular line is 5y - 9x + 48 = 0

Find the equation of the line that passes through (−2,1) and is perpendicular to the line that passes through the following points: (1,4),(−2,3)

If I get the slope of a line, and one point that is on it, then, are they define exactly ONE line?

The point–slope form of linear equations$(y-{y}_{1}=m(x-{x}_{1}))$ need only the slope and the coordinates of that given point. And this equation describes exactly one line.

Is it enough?

How to solve $97x\equiv 1\phantom{\rule{0.667em}{0ex}}\mathrm{mod}\phantom{\rule{thinmathspace}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{thinmathspace}{0ex}}61$ in a quick way?

I tried to solve it in the Diophantine equation form $97x+61y=1$ 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?
