Answer:

Convert the given equation into slope-intercept form to obtain:
#color(white)("XXX")#slope #=6#
#color(white)("XXX")#y-intercept #=(-1/2)#

Explanation:

The general slope-intercept form is
#color(white)("XXX")y=mx+b#
with slope #m# and y-intercept #b#

Given:
#color(white)("XXX")12x=2y+1#

#color(white)("XXX")2y=12x-1#

#color(white)("XXX")y=6x+(-1/2)#
which is in slope-intercept form with slope #6# and y-intercept #(-1/2)#
