#### Explanation:

First we need to get the slope of the perpendicular line

The slope of a perpendicular line is equal to the negative inverse of the slope of the given line

Now that we have the slope, we need to find the y-intercept.

To find the y-intercept, we need to plug-in values of

Therefore, the equation of the line is
