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

Easy...

The standard form of the equation is 2x + 4y = -17.

However, when putting this into slope-intercept form we can do this by:

4y = -2x - 17

y = -1/2x - 17/4.

So the slope of the line is -1/2.

(Please tell me if my answer is wrong)

It's right, thanks!
