m = $\frac{{y}_{2}-{y}_{1}}{{x}_{2}-{x}_{1}}$

m = $\frac{0-8}{0-(-9)}$

m = $-\frac{8}{9}$

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 = $\frac{9}{8}$

So, the slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through (-9, 8) and (0,0) is $\frac{9}{8}$

${R}_{1}C\frac{d{v}_{o}(t)}{dt}+{v}_{o}(t)=-{R}_{2}C\frac{d{v}_{in}(t)}{dt}$

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.

Find the point-slope form of the equation of the line passing through the point (6, -3) and has a slope of 1/2

I want to solve the differential equation ${y}^{\prime}{y}^{2}=y+x{y}^{\prime}$. I notice that the differential is not in the general form of first order linear equations which is ${y}^{\prime}+P(x)y=Q(x)$. 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:

$2{x}_{1}+(3+a){x}_{2}+2{x}_{3}=2+a$

${x}_{1}+a{x}_{2}+2{x}_{3}=a$

$a{x}_{1}+2{x}_{2}+2a{x}_{3}=0$

assuming that$a\ne \pm \sqrt{2}$ ? 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.$a\ne \pm \sqrt{2}$ ?
