What is the slope intercept form of the line with a slope of -1/2  and y-intercept of  0 ?

$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + 0 \text{ (the +0 can be left out)}$

Explanation:

This just involves a direct substitution of the given values into the standard form $y = m x + c$

In this, $m$ is the slope and $c$ is the y-intercept.

So for m = $- \frac{1}{2} \mathmr{and} c = 0$

$y = - \frac{1}{2} x + 0$
