Answer:Step-by-step explanation:1) Lines that are perpendicular have slopes that are opposite reciprocals of each other. y = -1/2x – 8 is in y = mx + b form, in which the number in place of m represents the slope. So, the slope of y = -1/2x – 8 is -1/2. The opposite reciprocal of it would be (remember to flip the fraction and reverse the sign) 2. So, 2 is the slope we need for the answer.

2) When you know a point that the line must pass through and its slope, you can use point-slope form () to write an equation. and represents the x and y values of the point the line intersects, and m represents the slope. So, substitute 2 for m, 7 for , and -6 for .
