# How do you draw the line with the slope #m=1/2# and #y#- intercept #5#?

##### 2 Answers

Start at the y-intercept and count

#### Explanation:

The equation of the line is

You know that the

Slope is defined as

Slope =

Starting from the y-intercept at 5:

count UP 1 unit and RIGHT 2 units, mark a point.

Repeat this process, marking marking points up and to the right.

Starting from the y-intercept at 5:

count DOWN 1 unit and LEFT 2 units, mark a point.

Repeat this process, marking marking points down and to the left.

Join the points with a straight line.
