## To find the slope of the line with the equation 8y = 7 - 2y, you can rearrange the equation into the standard form y = mx + b, where m represents the slope.

Start by combining the y terms on one side of the equation:

8y + 2y = 7

Combine like terms:

10y = 7

To isolate y, divide both sides of the equation by 10:

y = 7/10

Now that the equation is in the form y = mx + b, you can see that the coefficient of x (m) is zero. In this case, the slope is zero.

Therefore, the slope of the line whose equation is 8y = 7 - 2y is 0.
