## 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.
