    What do you need to do to both sides to get a positive multiple of y?
    multiply by 2?

    That would give 2x-4y=0

    I'll give you a clue, it involves addition

    Exactly, so what would you do to make -2y become 2y?

    add 4y
    Yep!

    So, now we have: x=2y

    How would you get the y on its own?

    take the two onto the other side to divide

    Correct, so now it's y=\frac{x}{2}

    What would you do next?

    I have no idea
    Maybe if I wrote it a different way.... y=\frac{1}{2}x+0

    Does that make it easier?

    so m= 1/2, and then you plug that into m=tan theta?
