Finding a Linear Equation Given the Slope and a Point

Finding a Linear Equation Given the Slope and a Point

Author: Cecil McIntosh
Description:

The objective of this packet is to demonstrate how to determine the equation for a line, when given a point on the line as well as the slope.

Multiple examples will take the user through using slop-intercept and point-slope forms of linear equation in order to determine the equation of a line when given the slope of the line, and a point on the line.
