Choose the equation of the line passing through the point (4, 2) and perpendicular to y = x + 6.
y = x + 6
y = x  6
y = x  2
y = x + 2

Product of slopes of two perpendicular lines is 1, so, like shining said, slope of new line = 1. The general formula of a line with slope m through point (a, b) is: yb=m(xa). So all you have to do now is fill in m=1, a=4, b=2, this leads to: y2=1(x4) <=> y+2=x+4 <=> y =x+2, so it's answer d.
