Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, you will learn how to write the equation of a line using the slope intercept method. By finding the slope and the y-intercept, you can write the equation of a line in the form y = mx + b. The video provides a step-by-step guide to finding the slope using two points, and then shows you how to use that information to determine the y-intercept and write the equation of the line.

Lesson Description:

How to write the equation of a line given two points using slope intercept method

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.

    This lesson starts after finding the slope between two points. This slope and one of the points is then used to solve for b to find the equation of the line between the points in slope-intercept form. All steps involved after finding the slope are shown and explained.
