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/2y+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.

Yes. y + 0 is simply "y"

clearly..then you subract 6 which is x/2=y6 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: \[\frac{1}{2} x = \frac{x}{2}\]
