  1. perpendicular slopes are negative reciprocals

    the new line has a slope of ... -1/2

  2. I won't give the equation, but here's some advice to help. Turn the slope of 2 into a fraction. Also, the slope of a perpendicular line is always the negative reciprocal. This should give you the slope, and you can graph the line to find the y-intercept, giving you the equations of the lines.

  3. (0, -3), m = -1/2 = -0.5,
    Y = mx + b.
    m = -0.5.
    b = y - mx = -3 - (-0.5)0 = -2.5.
