Work Step by Step

You have (0,0) and y =-3x+2. The slope of this equation is -3. You have to find the negative reciprocal of -3 which is $\frac{1}{3}$. So the slope for the other equation is $\frac{1}{3}$.Use $\frac{1}{3}$ and (0,0) to find b: y=mx+b 0=$\frac{1}{3}$(0)+b 0=0+b 0=b The y-intercept is 0 and the slope is $\frac{1}{3}$ so the equation would be y=$\frac{1}{3}$x
