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

Dec 20, 2016

A straight line with slope of $\frac{1}{2}$ and y-intercept of $2$

#### Explanation:

The equation of a straight line with slope $\left(m\right)$ and y-intercept $\left(c\right)$ form is:

$y = m x + c$

In this example: $y = \frac{1}{2} x + 2$

So, $m = \frac{1}{2}$ and $c = 2$

Thus the graph of $y$ is a straight line with slope of $\frac{1}{2}$ and y-intercept of $2$ as below.
