How do you find the slope and y intercept of 2y=5?

Jan 1, 2016

The slope is zero and the y-intercept is $\frac{5}{2}$. The graph is a straight horizontal line.

Explanation:

$2 y = 5$

Divide both sides by $2$.

$y = \frac{5}{2}$

Slope-intercept form is $y = m x + b$, where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the slope intercept. The slope of the line $y = \frac{5}{2}$ is $0$. The equation is $y = 0 x + \frac{5}{2}$, and the y-intercept is $\frac{5}{2}$, which is $2 \frac{1}{2}$.
