    g is perpendicular to h If g or h is not parallel to either the x-axis or the y-axis, then the conjecture is true. While a vertical line is perpendicular to a horizontal one, the slope of a vertical line does not exist and the slope of a horizontal is 0. Ergo, their slope product will not be -1.
