perpendicular lines have negative reciprocal slopes parallel line have same slopes

wait would it be for the perpindicular -- >-8 and for the paralell it would be 8?

2x-4y=8. -4y=8-2x y=(-2x+8)/(-4)=1/2x-2 the slope of your given line is 1/2

the slope if 1/2. the negative reciprocal to 1/2 is -2.

so just to reiterate, the perpidicular would be -2 and the parellel would be the same?
