RECALL: The slope-intercept form of a line's equation is $y=mx+b$ where $m$=slope and $(0, b)$ is the line's y-intercept. The given line has: slope = $\frac{1}{2}$ y-intercept: $(0, 2)$ To graph the given equation, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept $(0, 2)$. (2) Use the slope to plot a second point. From $(0, 2)$, move 1 unit up (the rise) and 2 units to the right (the run) to reach the point $(2, 3)$. Plot $(2, 3)$ (3) Connect the two points using a line to complete the graph. Refer to the graph in the answer part above.
