    Step-by-step explanation:

    x+2y=16

    -× -×

    2y=-x+16

    ÷2. ÷2

    y=-1/2x+8

    slope is -1/2

    Answer: [tex]-\frac{1}{2}[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    To find the slope, let’s turn the equation into slope-interept form. In slope intercept form, y=mx+b, we know that m=slope.

    [tex]x+2y=16[/tex]             [subtract both sides by x]

    [tex]2y=-x+16[/tex]          [divide both sides by 2]

    [tex]y=-\frac{1}{2}x+8[/tex]

    Now, we know that [tex]m=-\frac{1}{2}[/tex]. That tells us [tex]-\frac{1}{2}[/tex] is the slope.
