you need to rewrite the equation in slope intercept form y = 1/5 x + 2 the slope of the perpendicular is the negative reciprocal of the given line... so whats the slope of the given line

thats correct so the slope of the perpendicular is \[m_{Perp} =-\frac{1}{m_{line}}\] so the easy way to now approach is is flip the fraction... and change the sign.. this will be the slope of the perpendicular.
