**Find the equation of the line using the point-slope formula. Write the final equation using the slope-intercept form. perpendicular to 3y = x − 4 and passes through the point (−2, 1)**

**Answer:**

slope of the perpendicular is the negative-reciprocal

m = -1

point-slope … y-1 = -1(x+2)

slope-intercept … y = -x - 1
