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

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

+ 1/8

x - 4y = 3 is the slope of a line perpendicular to line whose equation is y -5 3x plus 8 3.

Perpendicular equation: 4x +3y -5 = 0 Perpendicular slope: -4/3 Slope of line: 3/4 Point of line: (-2, -3) Equation of line: y - -3=3/4(x - -2) => 4y - -12=3x - -6 => 4y = 3x -6 Therefore the equation of the line is: 4y = 3x -6 or 3x -4y -6 = 0

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
