Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

First assume  that equation of line is y=mx+c 

we use the gradient of two lines as m1 and m2 

thus m1m2=-1

which  can be m1=-1/m2

or m2=-1/m1


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
