What is the slope of 4x + 2y = 14?

Get the equation in slope-intercept form: y = mx + b

- then the slope will be the number in front of the x

4x + 2y = 14

2y = -4x + 14 {subtracted 4x from both sides}

y = -2x + 7 {divided both sides by 2}

slope = -2 {the number in front of the x when in slope-intercept form}

- then the slope will be the number in front of the x

4x + 2y = 14

2y = -4x + 14 {subtracted 4x from both sides}

y = -2x + 7 {divided both sides by 2}

slope = -2 {the number in front of the x when in slope-intercept form}
