A line passes through the origin and has a slope of –3. The equation of the line that is perpendicular to the first line and passes through the point (3, 4) is y = 1/3x + 3

The slope of a line is –4 and its y-intercept is (0, 4). The equation of the line that is perpendicular to the first line and passes through (–8, 2) is y = 1/4x + 4

The equation of the line that passes through (–2, –3) and is perpendicular to 2x – 3y = 6 is 3x + 2y = -12
