Is the condition m1*m2 =-1 always valid where m1,m2 are the slopes of perpendicular lines? because if we take the case of x-axis and y-axis (infinity *0 is never equal to -1)

It is always vailed. x-axis and y-axis are to determine the directions and cartisions points. if we talk any line being perpendicular to x-axis like x=2 then what will be its slop that doen't make any sense thus i think you wold have understood the concept.
