Answer:

The slope is #color(red)(m) = 1/2#

The y-intercept is #color(blue)(b) = 0# or (0, 0)

Explanation:

This equation is in the slope intercept form.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is:

#y = color(red)(m)x + color(blue)(b)#

Where #color(red)(m)# is the slope and #color(blue)(b)# is the y-intercept value.

For this equation:

#y = color(red)(1/2)x + color(blue)(0)#
