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

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.
