The line perpendicular to a line with a slope of 1/5 has a slope of -5.

The slope of a line is undefined if the line is vertical.

A vertical line has a slope of infinity.

The slope of a line perpendicular to one with slope m is -1/m. So for a line with slope 1/7, any line perpendicular to it will have: slope = -1 / (1/7) = -7

It will have the same slope but with a different y intercept.
