The slope is -0.2

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 )

-5

negative 1

It is: -1/2

-1/5

the slope will be positive 1.5x the whole equation is y=4.5+1.5x

It is -1/2

- 1/3

3x+y = 4 y = -3x+4 Perpendicular slope: 1/3

4y= -3x + 12 y = -3/4x + 3 The perpendicular slope is 4/3
