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 -

The slope-intercept form of a line is
y=mx+b
where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

You can consider the given equation as:
y=(1/2)x+0
So what is the y-intercept?

• math -

is it (0,0)? I thought x was the slope

• math -

m is the slope, and b is the y-intercept in y=mx+b. The given equation can be converted to the form
y=(1/2)x + 0
So what is the y-intercept for the given equation?

Note: the y-intercept is a single numerical which represents the y-coordinate of the intersection of the line with the y-axis. It is not a coordinate pair.

• math -

the question tells us to type in an ordered pair

• math -

In that case, you could answer with the ordered pair of the intersection point, namely (0,0) as you mentioned.
