# How do you find the slope and intercept of y=-1/2x +4?

Feb 6, 2016

Slope: $- \frac{1}{2}$
Y-intercept: $4$

#### Explanation:

The equation of the line is given in Slope-Intercept Form.
This means that the equation is set up as follows:

$y = m x + b$

Where:
$y$ is the $y$ value or $f \left(x\right)$
$x$ is the $x$ value
$m$ is the slope
and $b$ is the $y$-intercept

So

$m = - \frac{1}{2}$
and
$b = 4$
