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

Jun 20, 2015

Slope $m = \frac{1}{2}$
Y-intercept: $x = 0 , y = 0$ the origin.

#### Explanation:

Your equation represents a straight line and it is in the form:
$y = m x + c$
where $m$ is the slope and $c$ the y-intercept:
$y = \frac{1}{2} x + 0$
