First, we need to find the slope of the line passing through (−6,17) and (2,18). The slope is;
18 - 17 2 - ( - 6 ) = 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;
1 8 . - 1 = - 1 8 its reciprocal - 8

Let A X = B be a system of linear equations, where A is m × 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 A Y = 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.
