#### Answer

$y-2=1(x+4)$

#### Work Step by Step

Using the properties of equality, the given linear equation, $x+y=6$ is equivalent to \begin{array}{l} y=-x+6 .\end{array} Using $y=mx+b$ or the Slope-Intercept form where $m$ is the slope, then the slope of the given line is $-1$. Since perpendicular lines have negative reciprocal slopes, then the needed linear equation has slope equal to $1$. Since it also passes through the given point $( -4,2 )$, then using $y-y_1=m(x-x_1)$ or the Point-Slope form where $m$ is the slope and $(x_1,y_1)$ is a point on the line, the equation of the needed line is \begin{array}{l} y-2=1(x-(-4)) \\\\ y-2=1(x+4) .\end{array}
