Find the slope of any line perpendicular to the line through the points (0, 5) and (-3, -4). Show work

Find the slope of the line through the two points:

slope= (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) you do that.

Now the slope of the line perpendicular to this is the negative reciprocal, or

slopeperpendicular= - 1/above slope
