Covers how to solve an equation for y so it is easy to plug in convenient values for x, make a table of ordered pairs, plot the points and graph the line. Also, solving for y will be useful to get equations in slope intercept form and graph using that method, which is covered in later videos. This is part 5 of a series of videos about graphing lines.
