Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0those arent perpendicular lines, those are parallel because they have the same slope.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0y=x+7 y=x+3 sp they are perpendicular since the slope of the first line is 1 and slope of the second line is 1 and their product is 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0perpendicular lines have to have reciprocal slope. for example, y = 2x+2 y = 1/2x+5 those two are perpendicular lines because theyre negative reciprocals of eachother. see what i mean?
