Work Step by Step

The given line has a slope of $\frac{1}{2}$ and a y-intercept of 3. To graph the given line using the slope and y-intercept, perform the following steps: (1) Plot the y-intercept point $(0, 3)$. (2) From $(0, 3)$, move 1 unit up (the rise) and move 2 units to the right (the run). These moves lead to the point $(2, 4)$. (3) Connect $(0, 3)$ and $(2, 4)$ using a line. (Please refer to the attached image in the answer part above for the graph.)
