How do you find the slope and y-intercept for the line #y=1/2x+6#? Algebra Graphs of Linear Equations and Functions Slope-Intercept Form 1 Answer Tina · Stefan V. May 21, 2018 Answer: The slope is #1/2# and the #y#-intercept is #6#. Explanation: You can actually plug this equation into a graphing calculator and you will find that each #y# value will be #1/2# the #x# value plus #6#. The #y#-intercept simply means the value of #y# when #x=0#. Related questions What is Slope-Intercept Form? How do you find the "m" and "b" of any linear equation?
