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.

Tutorial

Slope Intercept Form

y = mx + b

b = y - mx

Point - Slope Form

y-y1 = m(x - x1)
