Given a point through which a line passes and the value of its slope you can graph the line. To do this first plot the given line. Now taking the slope and using the rise over run method plot a second point. Connect these two points and this gives you the graph of the line. Extend this line further on both sides to get the complete line. The point where this line cuts the xaxes is called the xintercept and the point where this line cuts the yaxes is called the yintercept. The important point to remember is that slope is rise over run and how to use it to plot a new point from the given point. This video shows how to graph a line using a point and slope of it.
