Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (1, 5) and perpendicular to y =1/5 x  10.
y = 5x + 10
y = 5x
y = 5x  10

we know that the slope of the equation is 1/5 but we also know that any line perpendicular to that will have a negative reciprocal slope What is the negative reciprocal of 1/5?
