Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To make a slope perpendicular, you just take the reciprocal on the opposite. In other words, you flip the fraction, and multiply by 1. so 2/1 becomes 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now product of slope of perpendicular lines is 1 so m(2/7) =1 can u find m from here
