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

Aug 21, 2015

$m = \frac{1}{2}$

#### Explanation:

As it is written, the equation of the line actually mathces sloper-intercept form, which for a general line looks like this

$\textcolor{b l u e}{y = m x + b} \text{ }$, where

$b$ - the $y$-intercept;
$m$ - the slope of the line.

$y = \frac{1}{2} x$
As you can see, your line has $b = 0$ and
$m = \textcolor{g r e e n}{\frac{1}{2}}$
