## What is the slope of a line perpendicular to 3x 4y?

It is given that the line is perpendicular to line with slope 3/4.

## What is the slope of the line perpendicular to 3x 4y 2?

Divide each term by 4 4 and simplify. Divide each term in 4y=7−3x 4 y = 7 – 3 x by 4 4 . Cancel the common factor of 4 4 . Cancel the common factor.

**What is the slope of a line that is perpendicular to X?**

The slope is undefined because the denominator, change in x , is zero.

### What is the slope of a perpendicular line to the line y 3x 4y 3x − 4?

So, the perpendicular line slope is −43 .

### What is the slope of a line perpendicular to 3x 4y 12?

3x + 4y = 12 Solve for y to find the slope of the line. Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals of each other. So, the slope of your new line is 4/3.

**What is the slope of a line perpendicular to 3x 2y 7?**

−23

Reqd. slope =−23.

## What is the perpendicular slope of 1?

-1 / m

The slopes of two perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals of each other. This means that if a line is perpendicular to a line that has slope m, then the slope of the line is -1 / m.

## How to find the slope of a line perpendicular to this line?

You can find the slope of a line perpendicular to this line by using the points and going through (y2− y1) (x2 − x1) ( y 2 – y 1) ( x 2 – x 1), or you can just nab it right out of the slope-intercept form! Yes, the slope of this line is 3 4 3 4. The 2 2 is the y-intercept.

**What is the slope of y = 3x – 6?**

The coefficient of x will be the slope. You have the equation of a line, 6x – 2y = 12, and you need to find the slope. This is slope intercept form, y = 3x – 6. Slope is the coefficient of x so in this case slope = 3

### What is the difference between perpendicular and reciprocal slopes?

All slopes are compared to some other line, usually an x-axis. The slope of a line is its angle, or steepness, compared to that x-axis value. Mathematically, it is the change in y-value compared to its change in x-value. A perpendicular slope is the negative reciprocal of any other slope.

### What is the negative inverse of a slope of -4?

The negative inverse of a slope of -4 is a slope of 1/4. A line perpendicular to your original line has a slope of 1/4.
