So the line is perpendicular to y = 3x + 5 that means the slope of the new line is the inverse of that slope. So the slope of the new like is 1/3(x)

y=1/3x3 and here is the equation for the line

Use y = mx + b to solve for the yintercept (b) Just plug in the values (x,y) and the new slope m.

Then you'll be able to write it in y = mx +b form
