What is the slope of a line parallel to 2x + 4y = -17? Express your answer as a common fraction.

thx!

In the form Ax + By = -C

The slope of the line = -A/B

So

A = 2 B = 4

And the slope is

- A / B = -2 /4 = - 1/2

4y=-2x-17

y=-1/2 x-17/4

The slope of a line parallel is the same slope, so it is -1/2.

You are very welcome!

:P
