# How do you graph the equation #y=1/2x+2#?

##### 1 Answer

See below:

#### Explanation:

There are a couple of ways to graph this - you can do a table of points or you can use the slope-intercept form of the equation and generate 2 points. Either way, once you have a couple of points, a straight-edge will help connect them and complete the graph.

Looking at the **table method** first, let's use

The other way to do this is to use the **slope-intercept form** of the line (and since the equation is given in slope-intercept already, we're good to go). Slope-intercept form tells us the slope (

So first we can see that the y-intercept in our equation,

The slope tells us how the graph moves. The numerator tells us how many the graph goes up and the denominator tells us how many it moves to the right. So we'll move up 1 and to the right 2, which gives us point

The graph itself will look like this:

graph{(x/2)+2 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}
