See the solution process below.
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:
Therefore the slope of
Let the slope of the perpendicular line be:
The formula for the slope of a perpendicular line is:
