I am trying to solve the final piece of this equation so I can right the equation of a given point and perpendicular to the given line in the form y=mx+b. I have followed all the steps correctly up to the point of getting y-7=1/9(x-5). 

I know next i have to multipy 1/9 by -5 which gives me -5/9, and then I have to add 7 which gives me 2/9 but the correct answer on this homework problem is is saying it is y=1/9x+58/9 and i have NO IDEA how they got that?
