Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Use (Y2Y1)/(X2X1) to find the slopes of each lines. If one is the negative reciprocal of the other, then they are perpendicular.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cause if thier slopes are different then its not perpendicular. its C

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and since on is negative they are perpendicular?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok the slope of the first one is 2/3. What about the second one?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So 2/3 and 1/8 and those are perpendicular right cause one is a negative?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought if something had the same slope than meant it was perpendicular?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1They're not perpendicular because one is not the negative reciprocal of the other.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If they were 2/3 and 3/2, they would be perpendicular. Or 7/8 and 8/7. Or 15/100 and 100/15

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what exactly does that mean . i feel so dumb im 18 and dont know this pellet

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Negative reciprocal means you invert the fraction and make it negative. So can you find the negative reciprocal of 5/6?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Good :) So if the slopes aren't negative reciprocals of each other, they're not perpendicular!
