#### Answer:

When given the equation of a line in the standard form,

you obtain the standard equation form of all lines that are perpendicular by swapping A and B and change the sign of one.

#### Explanation:

Given:

Please observe that

To make the standard form of all lines that are perpendicular, swap A and B and, because B is negative, I shall change the sign of B:

To find the value of D, evaluate the standard from at the given point,

The standard form of the equation of the desired line is:
