This lesson introduces you to the concept of finding the equation of a line rather than graphing a line.  Basiclly you will be given information about a line- for example the slope or a few points that are on the line then you will have to find the y = mx + b equation for the line.  Make sure you know the previous lessons well and you can solve equations. As your teacher I want you to take the time to really learn the material so don’t rush the lesson.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• the information you need to find the equation of a line
• y = mx + b format
• how to check if a point is on a line

#### Finding The Equation Of A Line y=mx + b Method

## Don’t Waste Time And Start Building The Math Skills You Need For The GED!

Taking my free GED math course is a big step to help you prepare for the GED. The course will help you learn core middle and high school math skills but you also need to do your part and practice! As such I created a workbook for this course that is designed to give students practice problems and solutions to strengthen their skills. In order to truly master math concepts you must practice a wide variety of problems. This workbook is an extremely valuable supplement that all students using GED Math Lessons should have.
