##### 1 Answer

See the solution process below:

#### Explanation:

This equation is in Standard Form for a linear equation. The standard form of a linear equation is:

Where, if at all possible,

The slope of an equation in standard form is:

Our equation is:

Therefore the slope of the line in the equation is:

Let's call the slope of a line perpendicular to the line in the problem:

The formula for a perpendicular line is:

Substituting the slope we calculated for
