The slope of a perpendicular line is always the negative reciprocal of the original line's slope. y = 3x + 5. the slope of the perpendicular line would be -1/3. For y =-(2/5)x -9. te slope of the perpendicular line would be 5/2. When you multiply the two slopes together the product will b negative 1, which is why they are called negative reciprocals.
