    okay so let's saayy... we have perpendicular lines and we are told \[m_1 = 2 , m_2 = -\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }\] focussing on m_1 = 2 what is the reciprocal of 2?

    reciprocal means to flip the number basically.. m = 2 = 2/1 right? the reciprocal will be 1/2 because we flipped 2/1 makes sense? but notice how m_2 = -1/2 ? isn't this negative of the reciprocal of m_1 = 2?
