The slope of the perpendicular line to the line is

m   = $$\frac{-1}{2}$$

Step-by-step explanation:

Step(i):-

Given that the line y =f(x) = 2x +6

⇒  y = 2x +6

comparing             y =mx +c

The slope of the given line   m =2

Step(ii):-

The slope of the perpendicular line   = $$\frac{-1}{m}$$

The slope of the perpendicular line   = $$\frac{-1}{2}$$
