What is the slope of the line perpendicular to #y=-3/2x+15 #?
The slope of a perpendicular line is equal to the negative reciprocal of the slope of the given equation
We know that the slope of this equation is
So, we take the reciprocal, which means that we flip the fraction over
But we take the negative reciprocal, so we add a negative sign
This is equal to
So the slope of the perpendicular line is
