First, we need to find the slope of the line passing through (−6,17) and (2,18). The slope is;

$\frac{18-17}{2-(-6)}=\frac{1}{8}$

If we multiply the slope of any line with −1 and then get its reciprocal, we find the slope of the line which is perpendicular to it.

So;

$\frac{1}{8}.-1=-\frac{1}{8}$ its reciprocal $-8$

$\frac{18-17}{2-(-6)}=\frac{1}{8}$

If we multiply the slope of any line with −1 and then get its reciprocal, we find the slope of the line which is perpendicular to it.

So;

$\frac{1}{8}.-1=-\frac{1}{8}$ its reciprocal $-8$

Let $AX=B$ be a system of linear equations, where $A$ is $m\times n$ matrix and $X$ is $n$-vector, and $B$ is $m$-vector. Assume that there is one solution $X={X}_{0}$. Show that every solution is of the form ${X}_{0}+Y$, where $Y$ is solution of the homogeneous system $AY=O$, and conversely any vector of the form ${X}_{0}+Y$ is also a solution.

To show the converse, I just have to check if ${X}_{0}+Y$ satisfies the equation which it does. How to show that the solution is of the form ${X}_{0}+Y$?

I am just guessing, $Y$ will be in null space which is perpendicular to subspace space generated by row space of $A$. So ${X}_{0}$ is just projection of solution of the system in the subspace generated by row-space of $A$. Still I am not sure how to show this.
