    Answer:

    \frac{3}{2}

    Step-by-step explanation

      The slope of a perpendicular line would be (-x) if the slope of the original line was (x).

      The formula for finding slope is:

    \frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}

    Inserting your problem would make the equation look like:

    \frac{5-8}{-2+4}

    Simplify:

    \frac{-3}{2}

    That is the slope of the given line, to find the slope of the line perpendicular to that one, we would put into (-x)

    Answer:

    \frac{3}{2}
