    First, convert the equations to y=mx+b format. This makes everything easier.

    Are you actually trying to figure it out, or are you just making people tell you the answers

    I actually tried ://// math isn't easy for me I guess I'm just that dumb.

    y=3x/2 -3 y=-2x/3+2

    perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative inverses of each other

    So if a line has a slope of 3x/2, then a line that is perpendicular to it has a slope of -2x/3

    Do you understand what makes lines perpendicular?

    To make a line perpendicular to that line you have to take the "negative recipricol" of the first slope.
