# What is the slope of a line parallel to y=-4x+7?

Jun 24, 2016

The slope will be $- 4$.

#### Explanation:

Your equation is in the Slope-Intercept form:
$y = m x + c$
where $m$ is the slope; in your case slope is $m = - 4$.
The parallel must have the same slope, i.e., $- 4$.

$m = \frac{1}{4}$

#### Explanation:

This equation is in the form $y = m x + c$

${m}_{1} \times {m}_{_} 2 = - 1$
The negative reciprocal of -4 is $\frac{1}{4}$
Check: $- 4 \times \frac{1}{4} = - 1$
