$\text{slope "=-1/2," y-intercept } = 5$

Explanation:

$\text{the equation of a line in "color(blue)"slope-intercept form}$ is.

•color(white)(x)y=mx+b

$\text{where m is the slope and b the y-intercept}$

$y = 5 - \frac{1}{2} x \text{ or "y=-1/2x+5" is in this form}$

$\text{with slope "=-1/2" and y-intercept } = 5$
