Answer:

This equation is already in slope-intercept form, so you can read the slope as the coefficient of #x#, that is #-1/4#

Explanation:

The slope-intercept form of the equation of a line is:

#y = mx+c#

where #m# is the slope and #c# is the intercept (with the #y# axis).

Any line parallel to this line will have the same slope #-1/4#.

Any line perpendicular to it will have slope #-1/m = 4#
