False

#### Work Step by Step

When we simplify the first slope by putting the negative in the numerator out front, we get $-\frac{5}{2}$. When we simplify the second slope by putting the negative in the denominator out front, we get $-(-\frac{5}{2})=\frac{5}{2}$. Since $\frac{5}{2}\ne-\frac{5}{2}$, the statement is false.
