Perpendicular line = - 1/gradient= - 1/2/3= - 3/2

Slope: (2-4)/(0--3) = -2/3 Perpendicular slope: 3/2

The slope of the line joining the two pints is (4 - 2)/(-3 - 0) = -2/3 Therefore the slope of the perpendicular is 3/2

Slope of a line = m slope of perpendicular line = -1/m

A perpendicular line has the negative reciprocal of the slope. The perpendicular line has a slope of 1/2 y=1/2 + 3 The 3 or y-intercept can really be any number though.

The slope (rise over run) of one line will be a number (n) or (-n) and the perpendicular line's slope will be the exact opposite. So, for instance, if one line has a slope of 2/3, then a perpendicular line's slope must be -2/3, and vice versa.

To find the slope of a perpendicular line, take the negative reciprocal of the slope of the given line. (Flip the top and bottom of the fraction and change the sign.) The slope of 3 can be written as 3/1. The slope of a line that is perpendicular is -1/3.

Slope of line: 3 Perpendicular slope: -1/3 Equation: y-2 = -1/3(x-0) => y = -1/3x+2

-5/3 it is always the opposite reciprocal for a perpendicular slope

The slope of two lines are perpendicular only if their slopes multiplied together equal -1 (m1*m2 = -1). So if a line has a slope of -3 then a line perpendicular to this one has a slope of -1/-3 or 1/3.

Points: (5, -1) and (2, -5) Slope: 4/3 Perpendicular slope: -3/4

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