## Answers

x - 5y - 2 = 0

x - 2 = 5y

y = (1/5)x - (2/5)

slope = m = 1/5

The line in question is perpendicular to the above equation.

Therefore the slope of the line in question = -1/m = -1 / (1/5) = -5 (labeled "n")

y = nx + b

y = -5x + b

substitute the known point (7, -4) (-4) = -5(7) + b

31 = b y = -5x + 31

Hey..I can help
