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 )

10 is.

45

It is: minus 1.25

negative 1

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

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

+ 1/8

-5/3

- 1/3

It is -1/2

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.

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

-- The slope of the graph of [ 4x + y = 2 ] is -4.-- The slopes of perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals.-- The slope of any line perpendicular to [ 4x + y = 2 ] is 1/4 .

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

4x+2y = 6 2y = -4x+6 y = -2x+3 Perpendicular slope is 1/2

3X + 5Y = 155Y = -3X + 15Y = (-3/5)X + 3The slope of this line is -3/5.The slope of a line perpendicular to it is 5/3.

It will be the positive reciprocal of -2 which is 1/2

The slope of a line perpindicular to y=-2x+5 is 1/2 because a perpindicular slope is the negative reciprocal of the slope.

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

4x+5y = 7 5y = -4x+7 y = -4/5x+7/5 in slope intercept form So the slope of the perpendicular line is plus 5/4

6x+3y = -9 3y = -6x-9 y = -2x-3 Therefore the perpendicular slope is 1/2
