##### 2 Answers

#### Explanation:

Firstly, let's go over what we already know from the question. We know that the

Our new equation passes through

In our point,

The line that is perpendicular to

Here's a graph of both lines.

solution is,

#### Explanation:

Any straight line perpendicular to this line should be parallel to y-axis and can be represented by the equation

Since the line whose equation to be determined passes through(-35,5) and is parallel to y-axis, it will be at a distance -35 unit from y-axis. Hence its equation should be
