Answer:

The equation of line is #y=1/2x+1#

Explanation:

Co-ordinate of x-intercept is #(-2,0)#
Co-ordinate of y-intercept is #(0,1)#
The equation of line passing above point #0,1# is #y-1=m(x-0) or y=mx+1#
The slope of line passing above two points is #m=(y_2-y_1)/(x_2-x_1)=(1-0)/(0-(-2))=1/2#

Hence the equation of line is #y=1/2x+1# graph{x/2+1 [-10, 10, -5, 5]} [Ans]
