since y=4 is a horizontal line, you want a horizontal line that passes through P, where y=5.

Oops Spoiler alert!!

The actual question is :

Write an equation of the line that pass through point P and is perpendicular to the line with the given equation.

P(3,5); y=4

well, what's the problem? A vertical line through P will have x=3. Cmon, guy, put on your thinking cap!
