It equals the slope of the line y = -x. That's a pretty darn strong hint right there is what that is.

6x + 3y = -9 So 3y = -6x - 9 or y = -2x - 3 So the slope of the given line is -2 Therefore, the slope a any parallel line is also -2.

Points: (1, 2) and (9, 6) Midpoint: (5, 4) Slope: 1/2 Perpendicular slope: -2 Perpendicular bisector equation: y-4 = -2(x-5) => y = -2x+14 Therefore: k = -2 thus satisfying the given bisector equation

[ y = 2x + 5 ] has a slope of 2. [ y = 2 ] is a horizontal line ... its slope is zero. Their slopes are different, so they're not parallel.

The slope of the perpendicular is -(1/2) .

Slope of given line = -3 Therefore, slope of perpendicular = 1/3

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: 1/5

The slope of the perpendicular to a line has a slope which is the negative reciprocal of the original line's slope.The negative reciprocal of x is -1/xSo in this case, where the slope is -2 the perpendicular line has the slope -1/(-2) or simply 1/2

line in data is y=-2X+6 The perpendicular line will have a slope of = +1/2 Note : m X m' = -1 , m= slope of line 1 ; m'= slope of perpendicular line to line 1

If: y = 2/5x+10 then the perpendicular slope is -5/2x or -2.5x
