The objective of this course is to show you how to write linear equations in slope-intercept form.

I will write a paragraph explaining how to do it and then I will have a powerpoint for you to solve to see if you get it.

Tutorial

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

Thank you for taking a look at the notes, please check my powerpoint
