What is the slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through #(5,0)# and #(-4,-3)#?
The slope of a perpendicular line will be equal to the negative inverse of the slope of the original line.
We have to begin by finding the slope of the original line. We can find this by taking the difference in
Now to find the slope of a perpendicular line, we just take the negative inverse of
This means that the slope of a line perpendicular to the original one is
