Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to find the equation of a line using point slope form through a given point with a slope. The process involves laying out the values of x, y, and slope (m) and then solving for the y-intercept (b). Once b is determined, it can be plugged into the slope-intercept form equation (y = mx + b) to obtain the final equation. By following these steps, we can easily find the equation of a line that passes through any given point with a known slope.

Finding the equation of a line using point slope form through a point given a slope

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 find the equation of a line when I am given the slope of the line and a point that the line passes through?
  • What is the equation of the line that has a slope of 4 and passes through (6,9)?
