Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0g is perpendicular to h If g or h is not parallel to either the xaxis or the yaxis, 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.
