find the slope? is it x?
x+4y=8

4y=x+8

.......................

  • math am i correct -

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

  • math am i correct -

    so whats the slope?

    is it 2?

  • math am i correct -

    I didn't notice until now, but oyu moved the terms wrong.

    original:

    x+4y=8

    -> 4y = -x + 8

    Divide each side by 4 to isolate y:

    y = -(1/4)x + 2

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