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 pointslope 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 plugin the values so make sure to take your time.
Things to focus on in this lesson:
• what is the pointslope formula
• the information we need to use the formula
• how to find the slope given two points
Chapter 6 Lesson 7
Finding The Equation Of A Line PointSlope 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
