Write an Equation of the perpendicular to y = 3x + 1 Passing though 0,4

Write an Equation of the perpendicular to y = 3x + 1 Passing though (0,4)

The line you want has a y-intercept already given, at x=0, the y-axis, y=4. Thank you Nataliya D.

Its slope must be -1/3 the negative of the reciprocal of the slope of 3 of the given line

y=-(1/3)x+4
