# GED Math Chapter 6: Slope and Graphing Lines Lesson 5

Ok welcome to lesson 5 on graphing lines.  In this lesson we are going to learn another method to graph a two variable linear equation.  This method uses the points a line intercepts the x and y axis of a line.  What you have to learn is how we find these two intercept points.  By the way this method uses a table of values so you may want to revisit lesson 2 to review tables if you’re having trouble.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• Ax + By = C format
• table of values
• x and y intercepts

#### Graphing Lines Using XY Intercept Method

pop quiz: a solution to an equation makes the left side value = the right side value?

 Nice job you know that much more for the GED!   At this point in the course you should be able to: * graph one and two variable lines * use the slope-intercept method to graph a line * graph lines using x and y intercepts Ok we are ready to start the next lesson. The topic is finding the equation of a line- this is different from graphing a line and you will need this for the GED!   Lesson 6: Finding The Equation Of A Line y=mx + b Method Lesson 1: Graphing Lines One Variable  Lesson 2: Graphing Lines Two Variables Lesson 3: Slope Of A Line Lesson 4: Graphing Lines Using Slope Intercept Method Lesson 5: Graphing Lines Using XY Intercept Method Lesson 6: Finding The Equation Of A Line y=mx + b Method Lesson 7: Finding The Equation Of A Line Point-Slope  Formula Lesson 8: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given A Point And Slope Lesson 9: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given Two Points Lesson 10: Find The Best Fitting Line/Scatter Plots Lesson 11: Linear Models/ Word Problems
