Consider the line -8x-2y=-5 what is the slope of a line perpendicular to this line and what is the slope of the line parallel

Solution: The general equation of the line and its slope is:

The slope of the parallel line is the same slope as the original line, so we have:

The slope of the perpendicular line is:

Suppose that the weight in ...
