    for slope-intercept solve for y (get y by itself on one side). Perpendicular lines have opp. reciprocal slopes. The slope of your line will be the number in front of the x once you get y by itself. So you take that number and flip it over and change its sign. then use that slope and point slope form to get an equation which can than be solved for y
