    Alright there are a few things to know when we are describing perpendicular lines. The most important thing to know is that two lines are perpendicular if their slopes are negative reciprocal of each other.

    Let me give you an example. line 1 \(y = 3x + 2 \) line 2 \(y = \large -\frac{1}{3}x + 4 \) line 1 and 2 are perpendicular because the slopes are a negative reciprocal of another

    in the problem that you have, it would be awesome if you convert it into y-intercept form first because it will be pretty obvious once you do it.

    that only gives you an idea of the slope tho, but how did you know that the line you picked contained the point (4, 1) ?

    I am not going to tell you the answer to your problem. That is your job. I am merely here to show you how to understand the problem.

    if you solved it instead of GUESSED, then you have a better chance at learning.
