##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

I assume there is a typo and the problem should be:

write the equation of a line that passes through

The line

Perpendicular lines have slopes which are negative reciprocals. In other words, take the reciprocal of the slope and change the sign.

The negative reciprocal of

To find the equation of a line which passes through

To put the equation in slope-intercept form, distribute the

Add 3 to both sides.
