    Slope intercept form involves getting y by itself. So you have y = mx + b. So start by subtracting the 6.

    the question is wrong. it's x/2-y+6=0

    \[\frac{x}{2} - y + 6 = 0\] ?

    Ok, well to get y by itself, all you have to do is literally add it to the other side.

    x/2+6=y+0?

    Yes. y + 0 is simply "y"

    clearly..then you subract 6 which is x/2=y-6 then you cant even get y alone???

    No, your solution is as it was. That is slope intercept form: \[y = \frac{1}{2}x + 6\]

    Remember that: \[\frac{1}{2} x = \frac{x}{2}\]

    would it just be y=x/2+6?
