What is the slope of a line parallel to 6x+2y= -26?

Mar 2, 2018

$- 3$

Explanation:

$6 x + 2 y = - 26$

$2 y = - 6 x - 26$

$y = - 3 x - 26$

$- 3$ is the slope. The line is parallel, so the slopes are the same.

This is because the two lines will rise at the same speed-they cannot catch up to each other.
