# How do you find the slope and y intercept for y= 1/2x-6?

May 30, 2015

In the linear equation:

$y = m x + c$

$m$ = slope
$c$ = y intercept

In the equation:

$y = \textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{1}{2}} x \textcolor{red}{- 6}$

slope is $\textcolor{b l u e}{\frac{1}{2}}$

intercept is $\textcolor{red}{- 6}$
