    Answer:

    The slope of the line that is perpendicular is 3/8

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The slope of the line through

    (-6,4) (10,-2)

    m = ( y2-y1)/(x2-x1)

        = ( 10 – -6)/( -2 -4)

        = (10+6)/(-2-4)

         = 16/-6

        =-8/3

    A line perpendicular has a slope that is the negative reciprocal

    – 1/( -8/3)

    + 3/8

    The slope of the line that is perpendicular is 3/8
