Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the instructor shows how to graph an equation in standard form using the slope and y-intercept. First, the equation is manipulated to be in y = mx + b form by undoing the operations on the y variable. Then, the values for the slope and y-intercept are determined and used to plot the line. The lesson provides a step-by-step explanation for graphing an equation in standard form.

Lesson Description:

Graphing an equation in standard form

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 put an equation into y=mx+b form when it is in standard form?
  • How do I graph a line that is in y=mx+b form?
  • How do I graph -4x+(1/2)y=-1?

    This lesson shows how to get an equation of a line into y=mx+b form when it is in standard form to begin with. Then it shows how to graph a line once you have it in y=mx+b form.
