Chapter 6 Lesson 6 – Finding The Equation Of A Line y=mx + b Method

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

Pop quiz: Does slope = rise / run ?

Wow!  You are learning a ton- nice work. At this point in the course you should be able to:

* work with fractions and real numbers

* solve equations

* graph lines

OK, there are more lessons on how to find the equation of a line let’s check out the point-slope formula.

Hello John, I am writing to thank you. During the Summer I took and passed all of my GED courses with the exception of the Math test. I found your free math course online and listened and watched all of the videos, trying to educate myself utilizing the tools and tips that you provided. I have to admit, it was very overwhelming and at times I felt as though I was being taught in a foreign language. I scheduled my re-test earlier this week and I passed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. It took me 22 years to feel confident enough to achieve this goal and I am forever grateful to you for offering this information online. You are heaven sent! Now I can apply for better paying jobs and attend college. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping others change their lives for the better!!” Sincerely, Alicia
