Slope of line parallel is 3 while the slope of the perpendicular line is

#### Explanation:

The slope of any parallel is the slope of the original line.

For example: Given y =

Since the slope of this example is

#### Explanation:

So any line with the same slope is **parallel** to

**Perpendicular** means that the product of the slopes must be

In this case the slope must be

Any line of the form
