Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to put an equation in standard form and graph it. To do this, you need to understand what slope in a sub-form is. Once you find the slope and y-intercept, you can graph the equation by plotting the y-intercept on the y-axis and using the slope to find other points on the line. Remember that a negative slope means you need to go down before going right or up before going left. With these steps, you can easily graph any equation in standard form.

Lesson Description:

Putting an equation in standard form and then graphing

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 get an equation of a line from standard form into slope-intercept form?
  • If I have the equation of a line written in slope-intercept form, then how do I graph the line?
  • How do I get 7x+6y-42=0 into slope intercept form and then graph it?
