    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
