# How do you find the equation of a line that Passes through the point (-2, 4) with a slope of 1/2?

Jan 3, 2016

Use point slope form.

#### Explanation:

y - 4 = $\frac{1}{2}$(x - (-2))

y - 4 = $\frac{1}{2} x$ + 1

y = $\frac{1}{2} x$ + 5

Your equation would be y = $\frac{1}{2} x$ + 5.

Hopefully that helps you
