(3, 2) and (0, -10) are 2 points on side K.

Slope of the side K

$\\ =\frac{y_2-y_1}{x_2-x_1}\\ \\ =\frac{-10-2}{0-3}\\ \\ =\frac{-12}{-3}\\ \\ =4$

Let the slope of the perpendicular side be m.

If two lines are perpendicular then product of their slopes is equal to -1.

$\\ m\times4=-1\\ \\ m=-\frac{1}{4}$

So, out of the given options the equation with a slope of -1/4 is

$y=-\frac{1}{4}x-10$

ANSWER:   $y=-\frac{1}{4}x-10$
