The lines below are perpendicular. If the slope of the green line is -8, what is slope of the red line? http://media.apexlearning.com/Images/200706/18/c817aaf3-1699-431d-b875-0f827d8526bc.gif m=

if 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. \[m_{1} \times m _{2} = -1\]

If 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.

you have to get the reciprocal of -8 and that's what happened ^
