How To: Graph a line using slope intercept form

Graph a line using slope intercept form

A basis of algebra, slope intercept form can easily bring your equation to a graph with ease. This video will show you exactly how to graph equations using the slope intercept form.

Students learn to use slope-intercept form to graph a line. Slope-intercept form is y = mx + b form, where m represents the slope, and b represents the y-intercept. So if the equation of a line is y = 3/4 x -- 2, then the line is written in y = mx + b form, with m = 3/4 and b = -2. To graph the line, start with the y-intercept, or b, of --2. From there, take the slope, or m, of 3/4, plot a second point, and graph the line.
