Did you not look back ?

remember that if lines are perpendicular, then their slopes must be negative reciprocals of each other,

So, if the first has a slope of (1/3),

the second must have a slope of -3

A cylinder holds 100 cubic centimeters of water. If you triple the radius of the cylinder but keep the height the same, how much water would you need to fill the new cylinder? V= 3.14r^2h
