Slope of the line you are given    = 3           perpindicular   is   -1/3

  so far you will have    y = -1/3 x + b       put in the point given for x and y   to compute 'b'

 

                                    8 = -1/3 (6) + b            so b = 10

 

the line you are looking for becomes   y = -1/3 x + 10
