the slope will be positive 1.5x the whole equation is y=4.5+1.5x
For the line 2x + y = 8 , the slope equals ( -2 ) so the required slope of the line which is perpendicular to it is equal to (+1/2 )
It is -1/2
3x+y = 4 y = -3x+4 Perpendicular slope: 1/3
4y= -3x + 12 y = -3/4x + 3 The perpendicular slope is 4/3
If you mean y = 2x+5 then the perpendicular slope is -1/2
Get the slope of the given line, by putting it into slope-intercept form. Then you can divide minus one by this slope, to get the slope of any perpendicular line.
y = 0That's the equation of the x-axis.Its slope is zero.
x - 4y = 3 is the slope of a line perpendicular to line whose equation is y -5 3x plus 8 3.
