This video shows us how to draw a linear equation using the slope and intercept technique. First, the narrator explains how to simplify the equation in order to get the slope and intercept out. He then shows how the coefficient of x equals the slope and the constant term tells us the y position of the intercept point. The technique for drawing the final line is plotting the intercept at the right height on the y axis, then running for some distance along the x axis and rising some amount. This action gives you a second point. Draw a straight line through the intercept and the newly found point and you are ready.
