Find the slope of any line perpendicular to the line through points (0,5) and(3,4).
I found the slope to be 3, but would the answer to the question be 1/3 ? what are your thoughts??
The slope of your given line is
(y2y1)/(x2x1) = (4 5)/(30)
= 9/3 = 3
The slope of any perpendicular line to your given line it must be 1/3, since the product of the two slopes must be 1.
