In the next few lessons we will apply the skills you studied about linear equations.  This lesson will focus on how to find the equation of a line given a point and the slope.  There are a few ways to answer these questions stick with the method you like best- what’s important is your ability to solve the problems.

Things to focus on in this lesson:

• point-slope formula
• slope-intercept method

#### Finding The Equation Of A Line Given A Point And Slope

do you have a 5 year plan?
