Given Line: ---> , where,

Therefore, the line passing thru (4,4) that is perpendicular has a Slope, .

But remember the intercepts of :
Let Fy=0:
--->
, or (3.5,0), X-Intercept of
Let Fx=0:

, Y-Intercept of

On :
Thru point (4,4),

, Y-Intercept

It follows, (Answer)--> Line passing thru (4,4)

Let Fy=0:

, X-Intercept

We see the line;
----> ;
