# What is the slope of a line parallel to 6x+2y=8?

Sep 30, 2016

$- 3$

#### Explanation:

We have: $6 x + 2 y = 8$

Let's express the equation in "slope-intercept form":

$\implies 2 y = - 6 x + 8$

$\implies y = - 3 x + 4$

$\therefore m = - 3$

Therefore, the slope of any line parallel to $6 x + 2 y = 8$ is $- 3$.
