Welcome to lesson 7 in this lesson we are going to learn another method to find the equation of a line.  Actually this method is my favorite it’s called the point-slope formula method.  I love this method because it’s straight forward and easy to remember.  As in any formula you have to pay special attention on how to plug-in the values so make sure to take your time.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• what is the point-slope formula
• the information we need to use the formula
• how to find the slope given two points

#### Finding The Equation Of A Line Point-Slope  Formula

FYI: this course will prepare you for an entry level college math course

 I know you are working really hard but think about how much you have learned! At this point in the course you should be able to: * solve equations * graph lines * find the equation of lines Now that you have the above skills the next series of lessons in this chapter will apply your skills to solve certain problems   Lesson 8: Finding The Equation Of A Line Given A Point And Slope 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
