y = (5/3)x - 7

this is in the form y = mx + b where m equals to: 5/3

any line perpendicular to this given line will have the slope of -1/m

so, in this case slope of perpendicular is: -1/(5/3) = -3/5

we know the y-intercept is -7, point (0, -7)

so wave:

**y = -(3/5)x - 7**

**The above is already the perpendicular line to y = (5/3)x - 7.**
