It must have endpoints (3,-1) and (3,5).

the equation of the line is: x=3(because x is constant) therefore the perpendicular line must be y=a now we have to find a.now the bisector is perpendicular to the line and pass throw the midpoint of the line.therefore a must be the midpoint of the line which is a=(y1+y2)/2=(5-1)/2=2 therefore your answer is   y=2.
