graph{y=-0.5x+2.5 [-10, 10, -5, 5]}

#### Explanation:

To get slope and intercept you need to rewrite the function so that y is to the left and expressed as a function of x, like this:

Here the slope is

We see that this graph intersects the y axis at

and the x axis at

This gives the following graph:

graph{y=-0.5x+2.5 [-2.203, 6.57, -0.86, 3.523]}
