## anonymous one year ago Write the equation in slope-intercept form. slope=1/2 and the y intercept is (0,6) Walk me through this please!!

1. anonymous

The slope-intercept form is: $$y=mx+b$$, where $$m$$ is the slope. So $$m=\frac{1}{2}$$. We also have a point $$(0,6)$$. This point is your x-intercept and y-intercept. $$x=0$$ and $$y=6$$ So we have $$y$$, $$x$$, and $$m$$, but we don't have the $$b$$. Plug in what's given to the slope-intercept form to solve for $$b$$. $$y=mx+b$$ $$6=(\frac{1}{2})(0)+b$$ $$b=6$$.

y = 1/2 + 6?? or do I incorporate the 0

3. anonymous

We already have the things we need, so we should now write it in $${slope-intercept form$$. $$\huge m=\frac {1}{2}$$ and $$\huge b=6$$. $$\huge y=mx+b$$ $$\huge y=\frac {1}{2}x+6$$

ahhh okay I see, that's what I thought I was just unsure if I add in the 0 or not. Can you please help me on another equation? I'm having trouble on the placements
