# What is the slope of the line perpendicular to  y=7/12x-2 ?

Slope of perpendicular line is $- \frac{12}{7}$
$y = \frac{7}{12} x - 2$ is in slope-intercept form with a slope of $\frac{7}{12}$
If a line has a slope of $m$ then all lines perpendicular to it will have a slope of $\left(- \frac{1}{m}\right)$
