m = y 2 - y 1 x 2 - x 1
m = 0 - 8 0 - ( - 9 )
m = - 8 9
The slope of a line perpendicular to that line would be the negative reciprocal. To find this, invert the numerator and the denominator and multiply by -1, which gives you m = 9 8
So, the slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through (-9, 8) and (0,0) is 9 8

How should this Differential Equation be classified? It almost resembles the form of a Linear Differential Equation, but the differential on the right hand side leads me to believe otherwise.

I want to solve the differential equation y y 2 = y + x y . I notice that the differential is not in the general form of first order linear equations which is y + P ( x ) y = Q ( x ). In fact the above equation is not linear.
I read that I have to switch the dependent and independent variable of the problem and then the problem will turn into linear first order differential equation. I don't quite understand the concept of switching dependent and independent variable, can someone explain?

How would you solve the following system of linear equations:
2x1+(3+a)x2+2x3=2+a
x1+ax2+2x3=a
ax1+2x2+2ax3=0
assuming that a±2? I feel confident in solving linear equation systems with just constants as the coefficients but the variable coefficient a is what gives me problems.
Here is the solution I find: solution as augmented matrix but how would the assumption about a make the reduced echelon form any different compared to an assumption about e.g.a±2?
