# How do you graph y=1/2x+1/4?

#### Answer:

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, solve for two points which solve the equation and plot these points:

First Point:

For $x = 0$

$y = \left(\frac{1}{2} \cdot 0\right) + \frac{1}{4}$

$y = 0 + \frac{1}{4}$

$y = \frac{1}{4}$ or $\left(0 , \frac{1}{4}\right)$

Second Point:

For $x = \frac{1}{2}$

$y = \left(\frac{1}{2} \cdot \frac{1}{2}\right) + \frac{1}{4}$

$y = \frac{1}{4} + \frac{1}{4}$

$y = \frac{2}{4}$

$y = \frac{1}{2}$ or#(1/2, 1/2)

We can next graph the two points on the coordinate plane:

graph{(x^2+(y-0.25)^2-0.00075)((x-0.5)^2+(y-0.5)^2-0.00075)=0 [-2, 2, -1, 1]}

Now, we can draw a straight line through the two points to graph the line:

graph{(y-0.5x-0.25)(x^2+(y-0.25)^2-0.00075)((x-0.5)^2+(y-0.5)^2-0.00075)=0 [-2, 2, -1, 1]}
