Perpendicular lines meet at right angle. Product of their gradients is always -1. For example line y=2x + 4 is perpendicular to line y= -x/2 . This is because 2 x -1/2 = -1.

Perpendicular line: A line is said to be perpendicular to another line if the two lines intersect at a right angle (90 degrees).

Perpendicular lines do have a mathematical relationship and can be written in an equation.

for example, they have undefined gradient form x = a, where "a" is the x-intercept.
