So, this one wants to be tricky. They give you slope intercept and you have to find it in standard. I will start out answering by asking you, Do you know the difference between slope intercept and standard?

How do you convert a standard problem to slope intercept?

Well I know what they both look like but not how to convert

So if I tell you the slope of the perpendicular is going to be \(-\frac{ 5 }{ 2 }\) what would be your choice?

The given equation is y = (2/5) x +9 Hence the perpendicular line will have the slope is \(-\dfrac{5}{2}\) Then, the required line will have the equation : \(y = -\dfrac{5}{2}x +b\) \(2y = -5x+2b\\2y+5x =2b\) That means the right hand side must be an even number. You have 2 options whose the left hand side are the same \(2y+5x\) But only one whose the right side is an even number. That is ....... ????
