    find the slope of AB the perpendicular line has negative reciprocal slope of what that slope is

    so we will have something in this form y=mx+b

    where m is the slope of the the perpendicular line since that is the line we are trying to find

    the only way to find that line is if we know a point on that line. I assume C is on that line, but I'm not sure of my geometry skills. So if we know C is on that line, then we can find the y intercept of that perpendicular line which we call b
