graph the equation and identify the y intercept: y=1/2x
How do work this can anyone help with step by step as i will have more of these?

  • math -

    Do you perhaps mean
    y = (1/2) x
    ?
    If so, when x = 0, y = 0

    If it is really
    y = 1/(2x)
    then when x = 0, y is undefined.

  • math -

    it really means y= 1/2 x
    Does x have to represent 0? I need to know why

  • math -

    The y axis intercept is the value of y when x = 0

  • math -

    because any old function that crosses the y axis does so along the vertical line x = 0

    This one never quite hits the vertical axis

  • math -

    the question says to list the ordered pair,is the ordered pair (0,0).Some of the questions give "undefined as an option, but not this question.

  • math -

    Well, 1/(2*0) is undefined
    so I would have to say
    (0, oo)
    and
    (0, -oo)

    where oo means infinity.

    Are you absolutely sure you do not have a typo in the problem statement?
    If it were y = x/2 the solution would be (0,0)

  • math -

    Graph the equation and identify the y intercept: y= one half*x or 1/2*x
    The y intercept is____
    type in the ordered pair.

    That is the exact question
