what is the slope of a line that is perpendicular to the line y = 1/5x + 7
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
for any line that will be perpendicular to the line y = 1/5x + 7;
lets assume the slope of the perpendicular line is m
the product of the slopes of the two lines must be equal to - 1 therefore;
Then ; 1/5X x m = - 1
therefore m = -1 x 5/1 = -5
The slope of the perpendicular line is - 5
