Welcome to lesson 9. In this lesson we will explore how to find the equation of a line given two points. You will have to know how to find the slope given two points so you may want to review that lesson if you’re weak at this skill. As in the previous lesson you can solve the following problems a few different ways- find the method you like best and stick with it.
Things to focus on in this lesson:
• how to find the slope
• point-slope formula
• slope-intercept formula
Chapter 6 Lesson 9
Finding The Equation Of A Line Given Two Points
no goals? how can you expect your life to have direction…..
I know this is a long chapter but hang in there you’re almost done. At this point in the course you should be able to:
* solve equations
* graph lines
* find the equations of lines
The next lesson will explore the topic of scatter plots- it’s a little different than what we have been doing but you want to learn the skill to be extra prepared for the GED
