The perpendicular from the origin to the line y = mx + c meets it at the point (–1, 2). Find the values of m and c.
The given equation of line is y = mx + c.
It is given that the perpendicular from the origin meets the given line at (–1, 2).
Therefore, the line joining the points (0, 0) and (–1, 2) is perpendicular to the given line.
