Lesson Objective

This lesson shows you how to determine the
equation of a line using the given information
such as the slope, coordinates of a point and
more.

About This Lesson

In this lesson, we will learn how to
determine the equation of a line using the
information given.

This lesson will show you 2 examples on how to do so using the following information:

This lesson will show you 2 examples on how to do so using the following information:

- Point (2,5) and Slope = 2
- Points (1,4) and (2,1)

Tip #1

You need to have some knowledge on
Slope-Intercept Form of a line.
You can learn about it by watching the math video in
this lesson.

Tip #2

Usually, to determine the equation of a line, we
should begin with the Slope-Intercept Form of a
line (as shown in the picture).

Next, we just use the information given to find the*slope (m) *and the *y-intercept (b)*.

However, bare in mind that the information given may not directly help us to find the slope or y-intercept. If this is the case, we need think of way of using the information to find them.
