Answer:

The slope of the line is 1/2.

Explanation:

See any straight line can be depicted by a general formula
y=mx+c
Where m=slope of line
Since your given question is already in this format, comparing we get m=1/2.

Hope it helps!!

Answer:

Slope is #1/2#
See explanation below

Explanation:

The general equation of a line is #y=ax+b#

where #a# is the slope and #b# is y-intercept. The value of #a# is given by #a=tantheta# where #theta# is the angle formed by line and x-axis

In our case #a=1/2# is the slope, and the angle #theta=arctan(1/2)#, is 26º 33´ 54´´
