5.1 Notes: Writing Linear Equations in Slope-Intercept Form

Hello people from all across the world, I am here to show you how to Write Linear Equations in Slope-Intercept form.

 

First of all we will be writing our equations in Slope-Intercept form which is y=mx+b

 

Where m= the slope

 

and 

 

b= the y-Intercept

 

Remember the slope is rise/ run so when you see a problem on the graph you will know to do rise/run.

 

Also when you have a graph as a problem you will know what the y-Intercept is, if x=0

 

So lets look at a problem.

 

 

 

1) Write an Equation whose slope is 3/4 and the y-Intercept is -4

 

This problem is fairly easy,

 

We already know what the slope and y-Intercept are so we can put it in slope-Intercept form

 

remember, slope-Intecept form is y=mx+b

 

y=3/4x-4
