Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, the two slopes are not the same. there fore the two lines are not parallel. now, what is the condition for two lines to be perpendicular?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no! it is (1/(3)) = 1/3. so, is 1/3 equal to 3/5?
