    line decreasing = negative slope line increasing = positive slope

    Lets take the slope of line l as n n>1 We knw that the lines r perpendicular so the product of their slopes = - 1 Let the slope of line p be m So n x m= - 1 m= - 1/n Now u knw that n>1 and m= - 1/n What can u cmnt abt the value of m will it be more than - 1 or less than it.
