Slope of given line = 3 So slope of perpendicular = -1/3

-1

It is: -1/2x or as a decimal -0.5x

-- 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 .

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

Slope of the given line is 3/7 So slope of perpendicular line is -7/3

Slope of given line = 3 So slope of perpendicular = -1/3

The line x = -4 is vertical, so a line that is perpendicular to it is horizontal, so its slope is 0.

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 )

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.
