Given the equations of two lines to be \( 2 x + 4 ...

Given the equations of two lines to be \( 2 x + 4 y = 16 \) and \( y = - 2 x + 6 , \) determine the following: 

Find the slope and \( y \) -intercept of the line \( 2 x + 4 y = 16 \) . Enter the \( y \) -intercept as an ordered pair in the form \( ( x , y ) \) . 

Find the slope and \( y \) -intercept of the line \( y = - 2 x + 6 \) . Enter the \( y \) -intercept as an ordered pair in the form \( ( x , y ) \) . 

Based on your answers above, are the two lines parallel, perpendicular, or neither? 

Answer

line 2x+4y=16

slope=\(- \frac{1}{2}\)

y-intercept: (0, 4)

line y=-2x+6

slope=-2

y-intercept: (0, 6)

Based on the answers above, the two lines are neither
