Perpendicular means slope is -1/(slope). So slope of new line is -1/2.

And you can use the equation y-y1=m(x-x1), plugging in x1 and y1 as the values of x and y that you were given. Then just shift the terms a little, and you should get the equation.

And m is the slope, which we determined was -1/2.
