Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First you have to find the slop of the slop of k. You find this from: \[\frac{ \Delta y }{ \Delta x }\] As slope (or gradient) is just how much y changes with respect to x. Therefore the slop is =(42)/(14) =2/3 =2/3 If a line is perpendicular to another the gradients of both lines multiply to 1 (you can look up the reason why if you want its pretty simple) 2/3 * (gradient of perpindicularline) = 1 gradient of perpindicualr line = 3/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And i just mean slope of k, not slope of slope of k. My grammar failed hard
