set one of the variables equal to zero then find the other variable and repeat for x and y, then plug it into the equation for a line y=mx+b

is this correct? please help me :)

Hey @Brent0423 - so, to find perpendicular lines, you need to remember that the slope of the line is the *inverse* of the original line. So, you should put your original equation into slope intercept format (y=mx+b), and see if you can figure out the next step from there.
