To find the slope and intercept of the equation 1/2x - 9 = 0:

- Rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form (y = mx + b), where m represents the slope and b represents the y-intercept.
- Solve for y to isolate it on one side of the equation.
- Once the equation is in slope-intercept form, the coefficient of x will represent the slope, and the constant term will represent the y-intercept.

Here are the steps:

1/2x - 9 = 0 1/2x = 9

To isolate x, multiply both sides by 2: 2 * (1/2x) = 2 * 9 x = 18

Now, the equation is in the form x = 18, which is a vertical line passing through the point (18, 0).

Since it's a vertical line, the slope is undefined, and there is no y-intercept.
