What is the slope of a line perpendicular to the line containing the points $(4,-7)$ and $(-5,-1)$? Express your answer as a common fraction.

Slope between the two points = m = (-7- -1)/ (4- -5) = -6 / 9

perpindicular slope is - 1/m = 9/6

y = 9/6 x would be a perpindicular line

THen you should check the points you posted in your question, **because 4/5 is incorrect ....**

Here is a graph:
