Answer:

Slope #=1/2# and #y-#intercept #= 3#

Explanation:

The equation of a straight line in slope and y-intercept form is:
#y=mx+c# where #m# is the slope of the line and #c# is the y-intercept.

In this example we have #y = (1/2)x + 3#

Note that this equation is already in slope and y-intercept form with #m=1/2 and c=3#

Hence, Slope #=1/2# and #y-#intercept #= 3#

We can observe this result by looking at the graph of #y# below.
