Want to find the slope-intercept form of a line when you're given a point on that line and another line parallel to that line? Remember, parallel lines have the same slope. If you can find the slope of that parallel line, you'll have the slope of your line! In this tutorial, you'll see how to find the slope of your line and use that slope, along with the given point, to write an equation for the line in slope-intercept form. Take a look!
Want to find the slope-intercept form of a line when you're given a point on that line and another line perpendicular to that line? Remember, perpendicular lines have slopes that are opposite reciprocals of each other. In this tutorial, you'll see how to find the slope using the slope of the perpendicular line. Then, use this slope and the given point to write an equation for the line in slope-intercept form. Check it out!
Looking for some practice converting the equation of a line into different forms? Then this tutorial was made for you! Follow along as this tutorial shows you how to take a linear equation from point-slope form and convert it into standard form and slope-intercept form.
Perpendicular lines have slopes that are opposite reciprocals of each other. To find the slope of a line that is perpendicular to a given equation, find the opposite reciprocal of that slope. Check out this tutorial to learn how!
Trying to write an equation in point-slope form? Got a point on the line and the slope? Plug those values correctly into the point-slope form of a line and you'll have your answer! Watch this tutorial to get all the details!
Trying to write an equation in point-slope form? Have two points but no slope? You'll need to use those points to find a slope first. Watch this tutorial and see what needs to be done to write an equation in point-slope form!
Parallel lines are lines that will go on and on forever without ever intersecting. This is because they have the same slope! If you have two linear equations that have the same slope but different y-intercepts, then those lines are parallel to one another!
Perpendicular lines intersect at right angles to one another. To figure out if two equations are perpendicular, take a look at their slopes. The slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals of each other. Their product is -1! Watch this tutorial and see how to determine if two equations are perpendicular.
When you're learning about linear equations, you're bound to run into the point-slope form of a line. This form is quite useful in creating an equation of a line if you're given the slope and a point on the line. Watch this tutorial, and learn about the point-slope form of a line!
Looking at a table of values that represents a linear equation? Want to find that equation? Then check out this tutorial! You'll see how to use values from a table and the point-slope form of a line to find the slope-intercept form of the line described in the table.
Looking at a graph of parallel lines? Got the equation of one of the lines? Want to find the slope of the other line? No problem! Just remember that parallel lines have the same slope! Use the given equation to find the slope of the first line and since the lines are parallel, that's the slope of the second line! To see an example, check out this tutorial.
