 Question 68760: What is the slope of a line that is parallel to the following linear equations?? 6y+2x=9Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16524)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!What is the slope of a line that is parallel to the following linear equations? : You should know that parallel lines all have the same slope, so if you find the slope of this equation you will know the slope of lines parallel to it. : 6y + 2x = 9 : Put this equation into the slope/intercept form: y = mx + b; (m is the slope) : Subtract 2x from both sides: 6y = -2x - 9 : Divide both sides by 6 y = -(2/6)x - 9/6 : y = -(1/3)x - 3/2 : the slope (m)= -(1/3)
