    @MOnsterBunnyNi wrong perpendicular lines have slope m1m2=-1 that is negative inverse of each other

    for number 1: perpendicular slopes are negative reciprocals of each other. i.e., when multiplied together they equal -1. The only set of slopes that satisfies this in number 1 is the set of slopes in c. for number 2: Same idea as number one, for it to be perpendicular, the slope (coefficient of x) must be the negative reciprocal as the original slope. If the original slope is (-5/3), then the perpendicular slope must be (3/5). Therefore, number 2 is d.
