Again, we will need to solve for y, since it is not in y = mx + b form.

divide each side by 2

remember that the coefficient in front of x is 1

or

Now we can see that the slope of the equations is ½, but where is b, the y-intercept? Can't find it? That's because it is 0; it's not necessary to write y = ½x + 0.

Let's plot a y-intercept of 0 and use the slope of ½ to find a few other points.
