**drwls**, Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 12:10pmNeither of your answers is right. They both have the same slope, -4/5. Rewrite each in y = mx + b form to see why

**Cianán**, Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 5:13pmSorry, I have to correct you drwls

the slope of 5x + 4y = 4 is -5/4

the slope of 4x + 5y = 8 is -4/5

**drwls**, Tuesday, December 9, 2008 at 5:31pmBlame my dyslexia. I misread the second one as 4y + 5x = 8 . You are right
