Understanding: If the intercepts of a line are (a, 0) and (0, b), what is the slope of the line? Assume that a and b are both greater than 0.

Enter only the slope, in simplified fraction form.

Error Analysis: Your friend says the line y = -2x + 3 is perpendicular to the line x + 2y = 8. Do you agree? Explain.
Yes; After converting the second equation to slope-intercept form, we can see that its slope is 1/2. Since -2 and 1/2 are opposite reciprocals, the lines are perpendicular.
No; After converting the second equation to slope-intercept form, we can see that its slope is -1/2. Since -2 and -1/2 are not opposite reciprocals, the lines are not perpendicular.
