In order to find the slope of a line we must rewrite the equation to slope-intercept form i.e. where is the slope.
So, the equation can be written as
Thus the slope of line (l) is .
The slope of a perpendicular line to line (l) must be satisfy the following equation
Therefore the correct answer is (C).
Hope these help!!:)
Thank you!!:)
