# How do you graph the function f(x)=1/2x+1?

graph{y=1/2x+1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

to graph we make

$x = 0$
when it happens

$y = 1$ is the intersection with the x axis

now when $y = 0$

$0 = \frac{1}{2} x + 1$
$x = - 2$

is the intersection with the y axis

then having two points and placing them on the Cartesian line

$\left(0 , 1\right) \mathmr{and} \left(- 2 , 0\right)$

join both points and you get the graph of the line
