The equation is image.

The slope intercept form of a line equation is image, where image is slope of the line and image is image-intercept.

Compare the line equation with slope intercept form.

Here image and image.

The slope of the line is image.

Slopes of the parallel lines are equal.

The slope of a line parallel to the line equation image is image.

Product of slopes of perpendicular lines always be image.




The slope of the perpendicular line is image.
