The slope intercept form involves solving for y, such that the equation looks like this: y = mx + b, where m is a constant representing the slope of the line, and b is a constant representing the value of the y-intercept.

Starting with the equation x+2y=6 and subtracting x from both sides gives 2y = -x + 6.

If we then divide each term by 2, we get the final result of **y = -1/2x + 3**.

Here we see that the slope (m) is equal to -1/2, and the y-intercept (b) is 3.
