  1. I don't think you did...

    Here's what I would do:

    x + 7y = 14
    Subtract x from each side.

    7y = -x + 14

    Divide both sides by 7.

    y = -1/7x + 2

    That means the slope is -1/7.

    Write another response back if you need me to explain in more detail or if you have any questions.
