# How do you change a standard form equation into slope-intercept form for 2x+4y=17?

By simply rearranging your equation to isolate $y$:
getting: $y = - \frac{2}{4} x + \frac{17}{4}$ I took $2 x$ to the right (changing sign) and divided everything by the coeficiente of $y$;
$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + \frac{17}{4}$
slope=$- \frac{1}{2}$
intercept=$\frac{17}{4}$
