  1. Given,

    In equation, kx – 5y + 4 = 0

    ⇒ 5y = kx + 4

    y = (k/5) x + 4/5

    So, the slope (m1) = k/5

    And, in equation 4x – 2y + 5 = 0

    ⇒ 2y = 4x + 5

    y = 2x + 5/2

    So, the slope (m2) = 2

    As the lines are perpendicular to each other

    ⇒ m1 x m2 = -1

    k/5 x 2 = -1

    k = (-1 x 5)/2

    Hence, the value of k = -5/2
