how do u find the gradient of y-3x=2
The gradient vector isnt perpendicular to the slope?mathwonk said:i am puzzled. you have not said what the function is, so i do not know what the rgadient is.
if the function is f(x,y) = y-3x = -3x+y, then the gradient is the same everywhere, namely (-3,1).
same if the function is f(x,y) = -3x+y-2 as has been assumed above, but this is not clear from your question. an equation is not a function, unless meant sas the graph of the function, in which case you would be giving the function y = 2-3x whose "gradient is -3.
No, for a linear function the gradient is the slope (in "British-speaking" places).whozum said:The gradient vector isnt perpendicular to the slope?
