see below

#### Explanation:

The slope of the the line passing through (9,4) and (3,8) =

so any line perpendicular to the line passing through (9,4) and (3,8) will have slope (m) =

Hence we are to find out the equation of the line passing through (0,0) and having slope =

the required equation is

i.e
