    Answer:
    y = 0.5/2 x + 3.5
    Step-by-step explanation:
    slope formula is y2 – y1 / x2 – x1.
    We pull two coordinates to use such as (0, 3.5) and (2, 4)
    We then fill in the formula to get
    4 – 3.5 / 2 – 0 which simplifies to 0.5 / 2
    That means our slope is 0.5 / 2
    We can see that our y intercept is 3.5 because on the chart when years equals 0, height equals 3.5.
    So then we put it all together in this format: y = mx + b
    y = 0.5/2 x + 3.5
