# What is the slope of 6y=-8y-14x+13?

Jan 30, 2016

$- \frac{2}{5}$

#### Explanation:

here,

$6 y = - 8 y - 14 x + 13$

$\mathmr{and} , 8 x + 6 y + 14 y - 13 = 0$

$\mathmr{and} , 8 x + 20 y - 13 = 0$

comparing this equation with $a x + b y + c = 0$ we get,
$a = 8$
$b = 20$
$c = - 13$
we know,

slope of a line, $m = \frac{- a}{b}$

by putting the value of a and b in this equation, we get,

$m = \frac{- 8}{20}$

$= - \frac{2}{5}$
