suppose,the equation of the line required is

Now,slope of the given equation

If, our required straight line needs to be perpendicular on the given staright line,then we can say,

So,

So,we found the slope of our line,hence we can put it and write as,

Now,given that this line passes through the point

So,we can put the value to determine the intercept,

so,

or,

So,the equation of our line becomes,
