Lesson Summary:

This lesson teaches how to graph a system of equations using slope intercept form. To do this, you need to convert both equations into y=mx+b form, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept. Then, plot the y-intercept of each equation and use the slope to find additional points to plot. The solution to the system of equations is where the two lines intersect.

Lesson Description:

How to graph a system of equation using slope intercept 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.
