How do you find the equation of a line PERPENDICULAR to y=4x+2?

General equation of line y=mx+c 1. Find the gradient(m1) of the line. 2. Find the negative reciprocal(m2) of that: -1/m1(gradient) All lines with that negative reciprocal are perpendicular. (3.) If you want to find a particular perpendicular line, substitute, into general equation, the given (X, Y) coordinates and m2 (found in step 2), and use them to find c. This c will give you a unique equa... more
