    So, the first thing we need to do is find the slope, so we’ll put the equation into slope intercept form

    y+17=2x\\y=2x-17

    So, our slope in the original is 2, so to make it perpendicular we need to take the negative multiplicative inverse.  So, we flip the fraction, and multiply it by negative 1.  So, we get -1/2 for our new slope.  Now, we just put the numbers into point-slope form and solve

    Y-1=-\frac{1}{2} (x+4)\\Y-1=-\frac{1}{2}x+2\\ Y=-\frac{1}{2}x + 3

    C is the correct answer
