    Statement Reason 1. AC←→⊥CD←→ (view diagram) ΔABC is similar to ΔCED. given 2. (This statement is intentionally left blank.) property of similar triangles 3. ABBC = ECDE property of proportion 4. slope of AC←→ = -ABBC slope of DC←→ = DEAC definition of slope 5. slope of AC←→ × slope of DC←→ = -ABBC×DEEC multiplying the slopes 6. Substitution Property of Equality 7. slope of AC←→ × slope of DC←→ = -1 simplifying the right side

    A) slope of AC←→ × slope of DC←→ = ECDE×DEEC B) slope of AC←→ × -slope of DC←→ = 1 C) slope of AC←→ × slope of DC←→ = 1 D) slope of AC←→ × slope of DC←→ = -ECDE×DEEC
