Slope of the line through given points is 1.

y  =  x line x  and y  intercepts are zero.

x  line passes through also origin.

We know that perpendicular line slopes are negitve reciprocal to each other.

So perpendicular line slope = - 1.

We need intercept of perpendicular bisector to determine it 's equation.

The possible perpendicular bisector if and intercepts are zero.

Required line equation y  = - x.
