#### Explanation:

Intercept form of the equation

Here ,

The given equation is

On equating , you get

So , slope of the given line is

Product of slope of two perpendicular lines = -1.

We found

Put this value in the equation.

So , slope of the line perpendicular to the given line is equal to 4.
