  1. Do you know how to find the slope between the 2 given points?
    If I remind you that the slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals of each other, can you finish the problem?

    Directions: Find the slope of any line perpendicular to the line through points(0,5) and (-3,-4). THis is what i did. m=(-4-5)/(-3-0)=(9)/(3)=3 y=mx+b using points :(0,5) 5=3(0)+b 5=b y=3x+5 so the slope of the perpendicular line

    the problem states. find the slope of any line perpendicular to the line through points (3,3) and (2,8). so did the formula m= (y2-y1)/(x2-x1) and from it i got -5 so the slope is -5 and anyline perpendicular to this sloe would be

    I am looking for a perpendicular line. I'd appreciate ir if you could tell me if I'm on the right track. I am given y=-5x + 4 and know that a perpendicular line passes through (3,5). I think the slope of this line would be 1/5 so
