Comparing with the equation of line in slope-intercept form y=mx+c
we get the slope of the line 4x−y=12 or y=4x−12 as m 1 = 4
The slope of the perpendicular line is m 2 = - 1 m 1 = - 1 4
The equation of line passing through (8,2) is y - y 1 = m 2 ( x - x 1 ) or y - 2 = - 1 4 ( x - 8 ) or y = - 1 4 x + 4
