Chapter 5:Write the equation of a line Given a Point and a Slope

Lesson 5.2: Writing an equation given a point & slope -Mathematically Step 1: Substitute values into point- slope formula Step 2: Solve for y

Lesson 5.2: Writing an equation given a point & slope -Mathematically Step 2: Solve for y The slope is 2; the point is (-1, 1). Step 1: Substitute values into point- slope formula

Lesson 5.2: Writing an equation given a point & slope -Mathematically Step 2: Solve for y The slope is 2; the point is (3, 1). Step 1: Substitute values into point- slope formula

Lesson 5.2: Writing an equation given a point & slope -Graphically Step 1: Plot the point (x, y). Step 2: Plot more points according to the given slope (m). Step 3: Find the y-intercept (b). Step 4: Write equation in slope- intercept form

Lesson 5.2: Writing an equation given a point & slope -Graphically Step 1: Plot the point x y Step 2: Plot more points according to the slope 4 2 2 4 -2 -4 -2 -4 Step 3: Find the y-intercept Step 4: Write equation in slope-intercept form
