What is the slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through #(-2,8)# and #(0,4)#?
See a solution process below:
First, we need to determine the slope of the line passing through the two points in the problem.
The slope can be found by using the formula:
Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:
Now, let's call the perpendicular slope
Substituting the slope we calculated for
