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: (-2, 3) and (1, 1) Slope: -2/3

Points: (-1, 2) and (3, 3) Slope: 2-3/-1-3 = 1/4

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

Points: (1, 2) and (3, 8) Slope: 3

Points: )1, 1) and (3, 3) Slope: 1

If you mean points of (1, 5) and (-1, -1) then the slope works out as 3

Points: (1, -3) and (2, -5) Slope: -2

If you mean points of (3, 3) and (-3, -1) then the slope works out as 2/3

Slope = (1 - 4)/(3 - 1) = -3/2 = -1.5

Points: (-2, 3) and (1, 1) Slope: -2/3

Points: (-2, 3) and (1, 1) Slope: -2/3

Points: (1, 3) and (3, -2) Slope: -5/2 or -2.5

(5-2)/(1--3)=3/4 slope = 0.75

Points: (9, 6) and (3, 8) Slope: -1/3

Points: (-1, 2) and (3, -1) Slope of line: -3/4
