Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If two lines are perpendicular, then their slopes have some relation: The product of slopes of the two lines, say line m and line n, will be \(1\).. Let us say line m has slope has \(s_1\)\) and line n has slope as \(s_2\), then: \[\large s_1 \times s_2 = 1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you can tell the slope of line \(x = 4\), I can surely say that you can tell the slope of the other line which is perpendicular to it and passing through given points.. :)
