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?

The slopeintercept form of a line is
y=mx+b
where m is the slope and b is the yintercept.
You can consider the given equation as:
y=(1/2)x+0
So what is the yintercept? 
is it (0,0)? I thought x was the slope

m is the slope, and b is the yintercept in y=mx+b. The given equation can be converted to the form
y=(1/2)x + 0
So what is the yintercept for the given equation?
Note: the yintercept is a single numerical which represents the ycoordinate of the intersection of the line with the yaxis. It is not a coordinate pair. 
the question tells us to type in an ordered pair

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