# What is the slope and intercept for  y= (1/2)x and how would you graph it?

Oct 3, 2015

Slope: $\frac{1}{2}$
$y$-intercept: $0$

#### Explanation:

From the equation, the coefficient of $x$ is always your slope. So from the equation you will get the slope as $\frac{1}{2}$.

From the equation, the number behind the $x$ is always the $y$-intercept. Since this equation has no number behind the $x$, so the intercept is $0$.
