$y = \frac{1}{2} x$
.....or more explicitly: $\left(y - 0\right) = \frac{1}{2} \left(x - 0\right)$

#### Explanation:

The generalized slope-point form for a line with slope $\textcolor{g r e e n}{m}$ through a point $\left(\textcolor{red}{a} , \textcolor{b l u e}{b}\right)$ is
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} y - \textcolor{b l u e}{b} = \textcolor{g r e e n}{m} \left(x - \textcolor{red}{a}\right)$
