    Answer:

    \frac{3}{8}

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The equation of a line in slope- intercept form is

    y = mx + c ( m is the slope and c the y- intercept )

    y = \frac{8}{3} x – 5 ← is in slope- intercept form

    with slope m = \frac{8}{3}

    Given a line with slope m then the slope of a line perpendicular to it is

    m_{perpendicular} = – \frac{1}{m} = – \frac{1}{\frac{8}{3} } = – \frac{3}{8}
