How do you find the slope of a line perpendicular to #y = 2 - 5x#?
To find perpendicular gradient,
Remember that the slope of the line is known as gradient, and is often represented as
First rearrange the function into the gradient-intercept form
Here we can see that the gradient of the function is 5, because
The perpendicular gradient is -0.2
Slope of the line,
a line perpendicular to
