I tried \[y-y _{1}=m(x-x _{1})\] but i would always get a value for y which isnt right
I think it is x = 4, thats the equation
how did you get that

y = -8 is a horizontal line, the line is perpendicualr to a vertical line, get it?
yea
so with a vertical line, x will equal one number, in this case, it is 4, always 4 for any y, so its x = 4, did i confuse u?
well how did you get x=4?
it said that it has to contain (4, -1) so that's how I figured that x has to equal 4
Some points of x = 4 are: (4,2)(4,8),(4,-6).......so one....understand?
so you just took the 4 from the pair?
yup, if i included another x-value along with the pair we have, its not going to be perpendicular, that's why
oh ok thanks
yea! Thanks :)
