What i think is that you need to start from the point (1,5) and then move up one and go to the right twice. remember the slope formula is: $\large \frac{ \Delta y }{ \Delta x } = \frac{ rise }{ run }$ so you "rise" one and then you "run" twice (to the right)

hint: the equation of your line is: $$y-y_0=m(x-x_0)$$ where: $$x_0=1,y_0=5$$ and $$m=1/2$$

im confused

7. Michele_Laino

after my substitution above, you will get this equation: $y - 5 = \frac{1}{2}\left( {x - 1} \right)$

8. Michele_Laino

please simplify that equation

9. Michele_Laino

hint: we have: $y - 5 = \frac{x}{2} - \frac{1}{2}$

10. Michele_Laino

now I add 5 to both sides, so I can write this: $y - 5 + 5 = \frac{x}{2} - \frac{1}{2} + 5$ please simplify, what do you get?
