    Two lines are perpendicular when the product of their slopes equals -1 so slope1*slope2=-1 y=ax+b, a=slope and b=y-intercept In your problem you have slope1=1/3 so slope2=-1/(1/3)=-3 the equation of the line when you're given the slpoe and a point is y-yo=slope(x-x0) where (x0;y0) are the coordinates of the point given so y-1=-3(x-2) y-1=-3x+6 y=-3x+7
