Writing a Linear Equation Using Slope-Intercept Formula

Author: Parmanand Jagnandan

In this packet we will be going over how to use the slope-intercept form to find a linear equation of a line when the slope and a point are known for a given line.

I review how to determine a linear equation by going over each step in the process. I also explain what to do when the slope is zero or undefined.
