In the xy-plane, line k passes through the point (1,1) and the line m passes through the point (1,-1). Are the lines k and m perpendicular to each other?

1) Lines k and m intersect at the point (1,-1)

2) Line k intersects the x-axis at the point (1,0)

According to 1) Slope of K is 1--1/1-1 = 2/0 infinity but says nothing about slope of M....not suff
2) Again can talk about only line K slop and nothing about m....not suff
Both together also do not talk about the slope of m

From both the stmt's we can only figure out the slope of line K, but not line m

Stmt 1 insuff as the two lines can have any slope only point of intersection is given
stmt 2 insuff again as we can only conclude that line k is perpendicular to X axis
together 1 and 2 insuff we get tht line k intersects x axis at perpendicularly and m at (1,-1) nothing about slope of m can be concluded hence insuff
