# What is the slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through #(-2,8)# and #(0,4)#?

##### 1 Answer

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, we need to determine the slope of the line passing through the two points in the problem.

The slope can be found by using the formula:

Where

Substituting the values from the points in the problem gives:

Now, let's call the perpendicular slope

Substituting the slope we calculated for
