Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, we learn how to find the equation of a line using point slope form. By knowing the slope and a point on the line, we can use the formula y - y1 = m(x - x1) to find the equation. The lesson shows step by step how to plug in the values and solve for the equation.

Lesson Description:

Finding the equation of a line using point slope form given a point and 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:
  • What is point-slope form of a line?
  • How do I find the equation of a line when I know the slope of the line and one point that the line goes through?
  • What is the equation of the line with a slope of 4 that passes through (6,9)?
