How To: Convert temperature using a point slope equation

Convert temperature using a point slope equation

In this video the instructor shows how to convert temperature using the point slope form. In this kind of problem sometimes you are given a temperature in Fahrenheit and its equivalent in Celsius and an other temperature similarly in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. Now you are asked to find a linear equation for these pair of temperatures. To solve these kind of problems assume that the given temperatures represent the point (x, y). Now you have two points. Substitute this value in the point slope form (y - y1) = m(x - x1) and solve the equation to get the linear equation that passes through the given points. This video shows how to convert temperature using point slope form.
