    that means you draw multi perpendicular to that line and consider which one passes through (3,5) hehehe...|dw:1443818561336:dw|

    x = 4 is vertical so the required line must be horizontal (because its perpendicular to x=4)

    no that doesn't describe a line a variable must be included y = 2x + 5 and y = 8 are lines , for example

    the y coordinate is always 5 on that line . There are infinite values for x. so x does not come into the equation, only y.
