The slope is "2" (or "$\frac{2}{1}$" . _____________________________________ Explanation:  When a linear equation is in "slope-intercept format"; that is, ____________________   y = mx + b ;   ________________   "m" (the coefficient of "x" (the slope); and "b = the y-intercept. _________________________ We are given the equation: ___________________________ "2x = y";  which can be written as: ↔  "y = 2x" ;        which is in "slope-intercept form", in the sense that: y = 2x + 0 ;  (b = 0) . _____________________________________________________                                            y = mx + b;  m = 2, or 2/1, which is the slope, which is Δy/Δy, which is rise/run, which is our answer. _________________________________________
