# Find the Slope of the Perpendicular Line to the Line Through the Two Points (minus twelve , three) , (eleven , minus six)

,

Slope is equal to the change in over the change in , or rise over run.

The change in is equal to the difference in x-coordinates (also called run), and the change in is equal to the difference in y-coordinates (also called rise).

Substitute in the values of and into the equation to find the slope.

Clarify the numerator.

First, multiply by .

Subtract from .
