Answer:

Slope: #1/2color(white)("XXX")#y-intercept: #0#

Explanation:

The general slope-intercept form is
#color(white)("XXX")y=color(green)(n)x+color(blue)(b)#
with slope #color(green)(m)# and y-intercept #color(blue)(b)#

#y=1/2x#
and be written explicitly in slope intercept form as
#color(white)("XXX")y=color(green)(1/2)x+color(blue)(0)#
with slope #color(green)(1/2)# and y-intercept #color(blue)(0)#
