#### Explanation:

The slopes of perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals of each other. (So, negative, and flip the fraction.) Since the slope of

Now, writing the second equation in slope-intercept form, with

To find that second

Now you've got the slope and the y-intercept for your perpendicular line!
