The slope is $\frac{1}{2}$.

Work Step by Step

To find the slope, we use the formula: $$m = \frac{y_{2} - y_{1}}{x_{2} - x_{1}}$$ We now plug in points we find on the graph of the line into this equation to find the slope of this line. We will use the points $(2, 1)$ and $(0, 0)$: $$m = \frac{1 - 0}{2 - 0}$$ Simplify: $$m = \frac{1}{2}$$
