Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

y = -x/2 + 1

Find any two points on the line and join them to get the line.

Let us find the x-intercept and y-intercept.

For the y-intercept x = 0, then 

y = 0/2 + 1 = 0 + 1 = 1

So (0, 1) is a point on the line 


For the x-intercept y = 0, then  

0 = -x/2 + 1

x/2 = 1

x= 1*2

x = 2

So (2, 0) is another point on the line.


Mark these 2 points on the graph and join them. Also extend the line in both directions.

Given below is the graph of the line.
