Step 1

1 of 3Two lines are perpendicular if their slope are negative reciprocal. Change the given equation into slope-intercept form. $y=mx+b$

$\begin{aligned} 3x+5y&=1\\ 5y&=-3x+1\\ \dfrac{5y}{5}&=\dfrac{-3x}{5}+\dfrac{1}{5}\\ y&=-\dfrac{3}{5}x+\dfrac{1}{5} \end{aligned}$

The slope in the equation is $-\dfrac{3}{5}$.
