How do you find the slope and intercept of y=1/2x?

Slope: $\frac{1}{2} \textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}}$y-intercept: $0$

Explanation:

The general slope-intercept form is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{n} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{b}$
with slope $\textcolor{g r e e n}{m}$ and y-intercept $\textcolor{b l u e}{b}$

$y = \frac{1}{2} x$
and be written explicitly in slope intercept form as
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} y = \textcolor{g r e e n}{\frac{1}{2}} x + \textcolor{b l u e}{0}$
with slope $\textcolor{g r e e n}{\frac{1}{2}}$ and y-intercept $\textcolor{b l u e}{0}$
