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

 

 

cool cool cool

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
