How do you find the slope and intercept of #y = 0.5x#?

1 Answer

Answer:

The slope is #1/2# and the intercept is #(0,0)#.

Explanation:

The slope is whatever number is next to #x# and the intercept is other the number that is either added or subtracted from the #x# term. Just remember

#y = mx+b#

The slope is #m# as a fraction and the intercept is #(0,b)#.

So for example, if you have

#y=4x+7#

the slope would be #4/1# (rise #4#, run #1#) and the intercept would be #(0,7)#.
