    #1) I need more detail. #2) Find the slope of both lines. Of they are opposite reciprocals of each other, then they are perpendicular.

    \[Slope = \frac{ y2 - y1 }{ x2 - x1 } \]

    The slope for line PQ is:\[PQ \to Slope = \frac{ -12 - (-10) }{ -5 - (-8) } = \frac{ -12 + 10 }{ -5 + 8 } = \frac{ 2 }{ 3 }\] Find the slope for line RS, if its -3/2 the lines are perpendicular.
