The figure shows the graph of two perpendicular lines. Which of the following pairs of equations might have such a graph?
Equation might have such graph
We are given a graph and equation
Consider the option
Simplifying the equation and writing it in slope intercept form we get
On multiplying the slope we get
Hence the lines are perpendicular
Consider the equations
On simplifying the equation we get
On multiplying the slopes of equation of lines in options a) ,c) ,d) we do not get
And for option b) on multiplying the slopes we do get but the lines passes through the origin hence the given graph cannot be described by the lines
The equation might have such graph.
