Perpendicular to the graph of y=1/3x+7; y-intercept (0,5) I have been working with this for tow days now, on and off. Am I correct so far? Perpendicular lines have slopes that multiply to -1. m * 1/3 = -1 Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi, Line Perpendicular to the graph of y=1/3x+7; y-intercept (0,5) New Line with slope m. Yes! , m = -3 Using the standard slope-intercept form for an equation of a line y = mx + b where m is the slope and b the y-intercept. y = -3x + 5 or in standard form: 3x-y = 5 ```
