Perpendicular slope has value

#### Explanation:

Since the given equation is a simple linear equation, it's not difficult to find the slope perpendicular to the given equation.

Now, we know that the product of the value of the slopes of 2 perpendicular lines is equal to negative of unity, that is

The above equation should first be made into a general slope equation first, so it becomes

So the slope of the above given equation is taken as

Now, substituting this in the given equation, we get
