Hi welcome to openstudy :) to find the perpendicular slope You flip the given slope 5=5/1 When we flip 5/1 what do we get?

y = mx + b has a slope of m Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals (flip and change sign). The given slope is 5. That's 5/1. The negative reciprocal is -1/5.
