## Answers ( No )

The answer would be y=13x+ -3.

The perpendicular slope would be the negative reciprocal of -3, which is .

Let’s see what the y-intercept should be, by finding one third of -6 and seeing how much we need to add or subtract to reach -9.

1/3 times -9 is -3.

To reach -6, we need to subtract 3.

So, the y-intercept is 7.

The equation is: .
