This lesson will show you how to write an equation of a line given the graph of the line.

Tutorial

The graph of an equation in slope-intercept form, y=mx+b, is a line with a slope of *m*, and y-intercept of *b*. You can use this form to write and equation of a line if you know its slope and y-intercept.

y-intercept: the y-coordinate of a point where the graph crosses the y-axis.

slope: the ratio of the vertical change (the rise) to the horizontal change (the run.)
