How To: Derive the equation of a straight line

Derive the equation of a straight line

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to derive a straight line equation. He shows us a process that consists of two steps. In step one he uses the slope formula to obtain the slope of the line which is the ratio of difference of y-coordinates and difference of x-coordinates. Now in the step two he uses the slope he obtained in the first step and equates it two a another slope derivation which uses a generic x, y variables and a real point. Now solving this equation he arrives at the equation of the straight line. This video clearly shows how to arrive at the equation of a straight line from the graph of the line.
