Unformatted text preview: 2x – 3y = 6 (Add 3y to each side of the equation) 2x = 6 + 3y (Subtract 6 from each side of the equation) 2x – 6 = 3y (Divide each side by 3) 2 2 3 x y = 2 2 3 y x =Since the slope of the given equation is 2 3 , therefore, an equation of a line that is perpendicular to the given equation would have a slope of 3 2. Since equation of Line L has an intercept of (0,2), then the equation of line L would be: 3 2 2 y x = +...
