    The slope would be perpendicular to the second line

    ax + by = c
    by = -ax + c
    y = (-a/b)x + c/b……the slope here is -a/b. A perpendicular line will have a negative reciprocal slope. To find the negative reciprocal, we flip the slope and change the sign. So we have a slope of -a/b…..flip it and it becomes -b/a….change the sign and it becomes b/a…..so ur perpendicular line will have a slope of b/a <==
