Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0parallel lines always have same slope for two perpendicular lines, the multiple of their slope is 1 so if one line has slope m, and a line perpendicular to it has slope n then m*n=1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that didn't really help with perpendicular part like i understand the parallel but thats it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok , so its given that a line has a slope 2/3 suppose the line perpendicular to it has slope x so (2/3)*x=1 x =3/2 will be the slope of the other line

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no when you multiply the slopes of the two lines, that are perpendicular , you get 1
