How do you find the slope that is perpendicular to the line #x + y = -3#?
See the entire solution process below:
First, we need to transform this equation to the slope-intercept form by solving for
The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:
Therefore the slope of this line is
A line perpendicular to the line in the problem with have a slope which is the negative inverse of the slope of given line or
Substituting the slope we obtained of
The slope of a perpendicular line will have a slope of
