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

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 -1/2

- 1/3

Without an equality sign it can't be considered to be an equation but in general if the slope was 3 then the perpendicular would be -1/3
