It is in the form, y=mx+c where m is the slope & c the y-intercept.
m = - 3
Slope of perpendicular line m 1 = - 1 m = 1 3
Equation of perpendicular line passing thru (2,6) is
( y - y 1 ) = m ( x - x 1 )
y - 6 = ( 1 3 ) ( x - 2 )
3 y - 18 = x - 2
3 y = x + 16

I need to determine the values of the b constants that would guarantee that the linear system is consistent. I tried to find the inverse of the matrix on the left hand side so that I could try and solve for the x variables and see if there are any values of b that would cause the system to be inconsistent but the matrix is singular. I then went on to put the matrix in reduced row echelon form.
| 1 0 3 0 1 4 0 0 0 |
From this I was able to derive the equations: x 1 3 x 3 = b 1 , x 2 4 x 3 = b 2 , and 0 = b 3 . I know that the answer is b 1 = b 2 + b 3 , but I don't know how to get that with the given information.
