1. in y = mx + b, the slop is m

for parallel lines the slopes must be the same
for perpendicular lines the slopes are negative reciprocals of each other.

I see the first slope as +9 and the second as -9

so which fits?

3. no, its neither

to be perpendicular, if one is +9 the other would have to be - 1/9
