In this packet, we will learn how to write linear equations in slope-intercept form, and learn how to solve real life problems referring to this topic.

This packet contains an introduction text section, a PowerPoint presentation explaining the lesson, and another PowerPoint containing some practice problems.

Tutorial

Y= this stands for the y coordinate. Ex:(0,**5**)

X= This stands for the x coordinate. Ex: (**4**,0)

M= this stands for the slope of the line. Ex: in y=2x+4 the slope is 2

b= this stands for the y-intercept of the line Ex: in 2x+4 the y-intercept would be 4

This is slope-intercept form!

What I call the double point- slope equation:

__
__y

_{This helps find the slope when the problem gives us two points.}
