How do you find the slope that is perpendicular to the line #5x+2y=8#?
Please see the explanation for steps leading to the slope of any perpendicular line equal to
Rewrite the equation of the line in slope-intercept form,
Subtract 5x from both sides:
Divide both sides by 2:
Please observe that the slope,
The slope, n, of a perpendicular line will be:
