The Slope-Intercept Form of a Linear Equation
In this lesson you will learn how to graph a linear equation by using the slope-intercept form. Double click the play button to start the video.
y = mx + b
where m = slope and b = y-intercept
First, identify the slope and the y-intercept.
Then, locate the y-intercept on the y-axis.
Graph another point by using the slope's numerator and denominator.
Finally, connect the two points to create the graph.
