Hi angie38;

Welcome to the forum.

First find the slope of the line you are given.

solve for y

The slope of this line is 2 / 3. For a line to be perpendicular to this one its slope must be a negative reciprocal. So therefore the slope of the new line is -(3 / 2).

The general form of the line you want is:

since we know the slope m

You should be able to solve for b and get the equation of the line that is perpendicular to the given one and passes through the point (-2,-2).
