What is the slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through #(-3,1)# and #(-6,12)#?
First, let's find the slope through the given two points:
Perpendicular slopes are opposite reciprocals of one another:
Opposites: put a negative sign in front of a positive number or take away a negative sign from a negative number (ex.
Reciprocals: flip the numerator and denominator (ex.
The opposite of
The reciprocal of
