# How do you find the slope of a line y=1/2x?

Any linear equation of the form $y = m x + b$ is in slope-intercept form with a slope of $m$ (and a y-intercept of $b$).
$y = \frac{1}{2} x$ is equivalent to $y = \left(\frac{1}{2}\right) x + 0$ and is in this slope-intercept form with a slope of $\left(\frac{1}{2}\right)$
