Could you carefully write out the problem again because I am getting a different result?

The way you wrote it, I am getting a y-intercept of 0. I think there is something missing. Is it like this exactly? y = 0.5 * 6 * x? there has to be an addition sign somewhere if @iSuckAtM4th is correct.

Here is my proof with one online calculator. I used couple and I am getting the same result. http://www.mathway.com/problem/MjE1MTg5Mzgw You have to clear up the problem if you want the correct solution.

If the problem is either of the following, the answer is y = 0.5: \[y=0.5(6^x)\]or \[y=0.5(6)^x\](notice that the x is an exponent in both of the problems) If the problem is like in the following, the answer is 0: \[y=0.5(6)x\]

You have to be clear when posting a problem because people get confused. Here is an example: http://openstudy.com/study#/updates/4fedd2c7e4b0bbec5cfd0d1b
