Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the slope of p is 1/m (negative reciprocal of line 1 which I assume as slope "m") we know this because the two lines are perpendicular (from the little square they drew)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1line 1 has slope m> 1 so let's pick m= 2 which is bigger than 1 (as a "for example") the line p has slope 1/2 which is bigger 1 or 1/2 1/2 is bigger (I hope that is clear)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait let me clarify this. So for perpendicular slopes it's always the opposite right? if the slope is 1/3 then the perpendicular slope is 3 am i right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes. the only time we run into a problem is a horizontal line with slope 0 and a vertical line with "undefined" slope. we could use the rule and get 1/0 but we are not allowed to divide by 0, so we just say "undefined" but other than that it's for example 1 , 1 2 , 1/2 3/2 , 2/3 5, 1/5 when you multiply them you will get 1
