# What is the slope and intercept for #y=1/4x+2# and how would you graph it?

Here, the gradient and y-intercept of this equation can be found using the straight line equation.

If, for example, your domain is 0<5, enter the values of x in that range to obtain the corresponding value of y for the graph's values.

The slope of the equation ( y = \frac{1}{4}x + 2 ) is ( \frac{1}{4} ), and the y-intercept is 2. To graph it, you would plot the y-intercept at (0, 2), and then use the slope to find another point on the line. For instance, you could move up 1 unit and to the right 4 units from the y-intercept to find another point. Connect these points with a straight line.
