# What is the slope and y-intercept of the line Y=1/2x-3?

Apr 17, 2018

Slope is $\frac{1}{2}$
y-intercept is $\left(0 , - 3\right)$

#### Explanation:

The slope intercept formula for the equation of a line is
$y = m x + b$

Where $m$ is the slope and $b$ is the y value of the point of the intercept.

For the equation $y = \frac{1}{2} x - 3$

$m = \frac{1}{2}$
$b = - 3$

Making the slope $\frac{1}{2}$ and the point of the y-intercept is $\left(0 , - 3\right)$
