In the next few lessons we will apply the skills you studied about linear equations. This lesson will focus on how to find the equation of a line given a point and the slope. There are a few ways to answer these questions stick with the method you like best- what’s important is your ability to solve the problems.
Things to focus on in this lesson:
• point-slope formula
• slope-intercept method
Chapter 6 Lesson 8
Finding The Equation Of A Line Given A Point And Slope
do you have a 5 year plan?
Nice job you are applying the skills you learned! At this point in the course you should be able to:
* work with fractions and positive and negative numbers
* simplify variable expressions
* solve equations
* graph lines
* find the equations of lines
Let’s take a look at how to find the equation of a line given two points
