You have to divide both sides by 4 to isolate y, then the slop will be the coefficient of x.

I didnt notice until now, but oyu moved teh terms wrong.

original:

x+4y=8

-> 4y = -x + 8

Divide each side by 4 to isolate y:

y = -(1/4)x + 2

In teh form y = mx + b (y-intercept form), m is the slop. So slope = -1/4.
