Answer

$m=-\dfrac{1}{7}$

Work Step by Step

Using $y=mx+b$ or the Slope-Intercept Form of linear equations where $m$ is the slope, then the given equation, $ x+7y=2 $, is equivalent to \begin{align*} 7y=-x+2 \\\\ y=-\dfrac{1}{7}x+\dfrac{2}{7} .\end{align*} Hence, the slope is $ m=-\dfrac{1}{7} .$
