Linear equations

Please help me solve this problem Find an equation for the line perpendicular to 6x+2y=2 having the same yintercept as 4x3y=6

The first equation can be rewritten as:
y=3x2
so the slope of the first line
is m=3
The slope of a line perpendicular to it is
m'=1/(3)=1/3
The second equation can be rewritten as:
4x3y=6
y=(4/3)x 2
so the yintercept is 2.
From the above steps, there should be enough information to find the new line required using the slopeintercept form of equations.
