1. y-5 = -4/3 (x+6)
now just convert that to y = mx+b

3. y - 5 = -4/3 (x+6)
y - 5 = -4/3 x - 8
y = -4/3 x - 3

the slope has to be -4/3, since the original line had slope 3/4 and you want a perpendicular line.

Your line is parallel to it, not perpendicular.

And, as long as you're doing algebra now, lose the mixed numbers. They're just a nuisance. 19/2 is much more useful in calculations than 9 1/2.
