The slope (m) of the line y = mx + b is the coefficient of x, so in this case, the slope is -1/2. The y-intercept (b) is the value of y when x is 0, so in this case, the y-intercept is 5.

The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is ( y = mx + b ), where ( m ) represents the slope of the line and ( b ) represents the y-intercept.

In the equation ( y = 5 - \frac{1}{2}x ), the coefficient of ( x ) is ( -\frac{1}{2} ), which represents the slope of the line.

The constant term, ( 5 ), represents the y-intercept.

Therefore, the slope of the line is ( -\frac{1}{2} ) and the y-intercept is ( 5 ).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
