The equation of the line is

The slope is

The intercepts are

#### Explanation:

The equation of a line is

where

The slope of the line

The slope of the perpedicular line is

So

The equation of a line, that passes through

Here,

So, the equation is

graph{(y+x+1)(y-x-2)=0 [-7.9, 7.9, -3.95, 3.95]}
