#### Explanation:

the product of the slope of the normal and the slope of the line

must be = -1 is they are perpendicular to one another

the line

where m is the slope so the slope for this line is 2

then Slope of Normal

slope of normal =

#### Explanation:

Perpendicular slopes are opposite reciprocals of one another. In the equation, the slope is

Opposites (negative version of a positive number and vice versa):

Reciprocals (switch the numerator and denominator):

The opposite number of
