Answer:

The slope is zero and the y-intercept is #5/2#. The graph is a straight horizontal line.

Explanation:

#2y=5#

Divide both sides by #2#.

#y=5/2#

Slope-intercept form is #y=mx+b#, where #m# is the slope and #b# is the slope intercept. The slope of the line #y=5/2# is #0#. The equation is #y=0x+5/2#, and the y-intercept is #5/2#, which is #2 1/2#.

graph{y=0x+5/2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
