To find the slope and y-intercept for the equation 1/2x + 1/4y = 3, rearrange the equation into slope-intercept form (y = mx + b), where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

First, isolate y by subtracting 1/2x from both sides:

1/4y = -1/2x + 3

Then, multiply both sides by 4 to eliminate the fraction:

y = -2x + 12

Now, you can see that the slope (m) is -2 and the y-intercept (b) is 12.
