It is: -1/2

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

Slope of a line = m slope of perpendicular line = -1/m

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

It is -1/2

- 1/3

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

Negative 0.2

Get the slope of the given line, by putting it into slope-intercept form. Then you can divide minus one by this slope, to get the slope of any perpendicular line.
