Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, viewers learn how to graph a line when given an equation with missing parts. By ensuring that the equation is in the form of y=mx+b, where m represents the slope and b represents the y-intercept, viewers can easily determine the slope and y-intercept. A slope of 0 results in a horizontal line, a slope that is undefined results in a vertical line, and the y-intercept is the point where the line crosses the y-axis. By graphing these points, viewers can easily visualize the line.

Lesson Description:

Graphing a line with missing parts

I show how to solve math problems online during live instruction in class. This is my way of providing free tutoring for the students in my class and for students anywhere in the world. Every video is a short clip that shows exactly how to solve math problems step by step. The problems are done in real time and in front of a regular classroom. These videos are intended to help you learn how to solve math problems, review how to solve a math problems, study for a test, or finish your homework. I post all of my videos on YouTube, but if you are looking for other ways to interact with me and my videos you can follow me on the following pages through My Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.

Questions answered by this video:
  • How do I graph a line when I can't put it into y=mx+b form?
  • How do I graph y=7?
  • How do I graph x=3/2?
  • How do I graph a line with no slope?

    This lesson teaches how to graph a line when the equation has "missing parts." This means that the equation is missing either the y,m,x and/or b from the equation y=mx+b.
