slope form
y = mx + b; m is the slope

what is the slope of the line 7y+2x=4

Honestly, I am seriosly lost on this question.. I dont even know where to start

so for the first one 2 is the slope?

if the slopes are the same, the lines are parallel

ok try solving for y
7y+2x=4

I feel silly but what would be my first step?

subtract 2x from both sides

The slope would be -2?

for the first?

nope write the whole thing
1st equation slope is 2

ok..... so the second would be the same then?

no, try solving for y, will help u

oh my ok.. let me work this out.. Just a sec

It would be 4?

nope
7y+2x=4
subtract 2x from both sides

sorry I thought I did.. this is embaressing ... ok just a sec

For some reason I just keep getting 2

7y+2x=4
-2x -2x
7y = -2x + 4 is that correct?

(4-2x)/7

yes

correct
one extra step
y = -2/7x + 4/7
whats the slope

is it undefined?

y = mx + b
m = -2/7

I dont see where I went wrong....
