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

Plan:

 - Convert it into the y = mx + b form. m is the slope

 

 - The line that is parrelel to the given line has the same slope.

 

Converting:

(1.) 2x + 4y = -17

 

(2.) 4y = -2x - 17

 

(3.) y = -(1/2)x - 17/4

 

[Now it's up to you to find the slope.]
