How do you find the slope that is perpendicular to the line #y=(-3x)#?
Slope of the perpendicular:
The standard general form of a linear equation in slope-intercept form is:
The given equation
can be re-written to be in explicit slope-intercept form as:
If a line has a slope of
then all lines perpendicular to it have a slope of
any line perpendicular to it will have a slope of
