# How do you calculate the slope, x intercept, and y intercept of the following equation: 2y=4x -2?

Jul 13, 2015

You can divide everything (at both sides) by $2$

#### Explanation:

$\to y = 2 x - 1$
Which will give you $2$ as the slope and $\left(0 , - 1\right)$ as the $y$-intercept.

The $x$-intercept is when $y = 0$
$0 = 2 x - 1 \to 2 x = 1 \to x = \frac{1}{2} \to \left(\frac{1}{2} , 0\right)$
