# How do you change y - 1/2 = x + 1/2 into slope intercept form?

Jan 27, 2016

y = x + 1

#### Explanation:

The equation y = mx + c is the equation in slope intercept form.

The equation given here is almost in this form.

Add $\frac{1}{2} \textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{to each side}}$

gives $y - \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{2} = x + \frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{2}$

hence in slope intercept form : y = x + 1
