Understanding: Which form would you use to write the equation of a line if you knew its slope and x-intercept? Explain.

Understanding: If the intercepts of a line are (a, 0) and (0, b), what is the slope of the line? Assume that a and b are both greater than 0.

Enter only the slope, in simplified fraction form.

Error Analysis: Your friend says the line y = -2x + 3 is perpendicular to the line x + 2y = 8. Do you agree? Explain.

Yes; After converting the second equation to slope-intercept form, we can see that its slope is 1/2. Since -2 and 1/2 are opposite reciprocals, the lines are perpendicular.

No; After converting the second equation to slope-intercept form, we can see that its slope is -1/2. Since -2 and -1/2 are not opposite reciprocals, the lines are not perpendicular.
