How To: Write and graph an equation in slope intercept form

Write and graph an equation in slope intercept form

This video teaches us the method to write an equation in slope intercept form and to graph it. The equation of line is y = mx + c. m is the slope and c is the y intercept or the point where it crosses the y axis. Let us find the equation of line if it crosses (8,6) and m=1/2. Substituting the values of x,y and m we get 6=(8)(1/2)+b. Simplifying we get b=2. Substituting the values in the equation of line, we get y = m/2 + 2. Suppose we want to find the x coordinate of a point on the line given its slope(1/2), y coordinate(6) and y intercept(12). Substituting in the equation of line, we get 6 = (1/2)x + 12. Simplifying we get x=-12. This finishes the video.
