    I think the answer is x=5

    x=4 is a vertical line. What sort of line is perpendicular to a vertical line?

    Line l1 is perpendicular to line l2 because the intersection is a right angle.

    The answer is going to be one of the y = values. Perpendicular is where two lines crosses and creates a 90 degree angle

    It has to go through the point (5,7).

    Because the horizontal line that goes through the required point is y = 7
