The slope of any line perpendicular to the line passing through the points (14,12) and (12,5) is the negative reciprocal of the slope of the original line. To find the slope of the original line, calculate the change in y divided by the change in x between the two points. Then, take the negative reciprocal of that slope to find the slope of any line perpendicular to it.
