For a clue, remember the general equation for a line, given the gradient and two points ( y-yn=m(x-xn) ) and recall that the gradient of a perpendicular is the negative reciprocal.

You have the GRADIENT of DF, hence the GRADIENT of EG.
You also have a POINT on the line EG.

So given a POINT and the GRADIENT, you can find the equation of the line, using any formula of your choice.
