Background Tutorials

Determine the slope of a line given a table of values, a graph, two points on the line, and an equation written in various forms, including y = mx + b, ax + by = c, and y - y1 = m(x - x1)

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!

Further Exploration

Determine the slope of a line given a table of values, a graph, two points on the line, and an equation written in various forms, including y = mx + b, ax + by = c, and y - y1 = m(x - x1)

To find the x-intercept of a given linear equation, simply remove the 'y' and solve for 'x'. To find the y-intercept, remove the 'x' and solve for 'y'. In this tutorial, you'll see how to find the x-intercept and the y-intercept for a given linear equation. Check it out!
