Perpendicular Sides

 Perpendicular sides are one of the basis of mathematics. Perpendicular sides are either in a vertical direction or in the upright direction. Also this perpendicular sides are present in a right angle manner. Perpendicular sides are also suitable for triangle, rectangular, square, parallelogram etc. All the shapes mentioned are having the perpendicular sides. Lets we study the perpendicular sides for triangle.

 

Example problem for perpendicular sides

 

Example problem 1: Solve the given equation having y +4x = 20. Find the slope for the given equation which is perpendicular to the given line

Solution:

Step 1: Write the given equationTherefore, y + 4x = 20

Step 2: For finding the slope in a given line, we have to change the given equation into the intercept form.

Step 3: The general formula for the slope intercept form is y = mx = c

                           y = 4x + 20

 Step 4: The slope of the given line is m =4, Therefore, we get,

                         4m = 1, where m = slope of the perpendicular line

 Step 5: Therefore, the slope for the given line is m = `(1)/(4)`     .

This is the required solution for the above problem.     

 

I am planning to write more post on Definition of a Perpendicular Line, How to Find Perpendicular Lines, Keep checking my blog.         

 

Another problem for perpendicular sides

 

Example problem 2: Solve the given equation having y +6x = 30. Find the slope for the given equation which is perpendicular to the given line

Solution:

Step 1: Write the given equationTherefore, y + 6x = 30

Step 2: For finding the slope in a given line, we have to change the given equation into the intercept form.

Step 3: The general formula for the slope intercept form is y = mx = c

                           y = 6x + 30

 Step 4: The slope of the given line is m =6, Therefore, we get,

                         6m = 1, where m = slope of the perpendicular line

 Step 5: Therefore, the slope for the given line is m = `(1)/(6)`  .

This is the required solution for the above problem.
