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.
