Graph the line y = 3x + 3. Homework Help ✎

1. Sketch the line that is perpendicular to y = 3x + 3 that passes through the point (–3, 2).

When two lines are perpendicular to each other, how are their slopes related?

Using the new slope, travel from the given point to the y-axis to find the new y-intercept.

2. Write the equation of the perpendicular line.

$y=-\frac{1}{3}x+1$
