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

May 7, 2018

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!!

Slope is $\frac{1}{2}$
See explanation below

#### Explanation:

The general equation of a line is $y = a x + b$

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

In our case $a = \frac{1}{2}$ is the slope, and the angle $\theta = \arctan \left(\frac{1}{2}\right)$, is 26º 33´ 54´´
