What is the slope of a line perpendicular to the line whose equation is
Your equation is 6x-4y=72To find the slope of this line, you must write it in slope intercept form, y = mx + b. 6x-4y=72-4y = -6x + 72 y = 3/2 x - 18Hence, the slope of your original line is 3/2A line that is perpendicular to the above line will have a slope that is the negative reciprical of -3/2. The negative reciprical is 2/3. Hence, the slope of the line perpendicular to the line whose equation is 5x + 3y = 8 is 2/3.
