First we must find the slope of the line x-5y=4. We shall put it into slope-intercept form.
The slope of this line is
. The slope of a line perpendicular to this is -5.
The line must pass through the point (-1,1).
We can give the equation of the line now in point-slope form:
So our equation is
We can convert this to slope-intercept form too:
So the line in slope-intercept form is:
Also, we can convert this to standard form as:
I hope this helps!
