STEP 1: Find the x-intercept.

Remember how to find the x-intercept of a line

https://sciencing.com/xintercept-yintercept-linear-equation-8384657.html

Plug in y = 0 in the equation y = 2x + 6 to get

2x = -6

x = -3

STEP 2: Find the slope of a line

Recall when two slopes are perpendicular

The slope of a line perpendicular to the given line y = 2x+6  can be

y = -2x + 6

since (-2)(2) = -1
