First figure out the slope in the given line. Next recognize that the slope of a line perpendicular to this will be the negative inverse of that slope. For example, if the first line had a slope of 2, a line perpendicular to it would have a slope of –1/2. Once you have calculated the slope, combine that information with the point you know, (1,1), to write the equation of your new line. The easiest way would be to put it in “point-slope” form.A line that passes through (1,1) and is perpendicular to the line 3X+4Y=12.
