# What is the equation of the line perpendicular to #y=-3/4x # that passes through # (2,4) #?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

We begin by finding the slope of the line that is perpendicular to

Therefore, if the slope is

Now that we have the perpendicular slope, we can find the equation of the line by using the point-slope formula:

So to find the equation of the line...

**Equation of the line**

We can also rewrite the above equation in
