Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if the lines are perpendicular, it means that when you multiply the slope of line 1 and slope of line 2, it will equal to 1. \[m_{1} \times m _{2} = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If we had two parallel lines with a slope of 8 then the slope will still be the same. But this time we're given two perpendicular lines so at one point, two lines will intersect.
