Amsco Integrated Algebra I: Writing an Equation Given Slope and One Point
 This is a free lesson from our course in Amsco's Integrated Algebra

 This lesson explains the concept further on from your earlier learning about writing an equation in slope-intercept form and when y-intercept is known. You’ll learn here how to write the equation, given the slope and one point which is not the y-intercept. To write an equation given the slope and one point, use y = mx + b for the equation. Replace m with the given slope and the coordinates of the given point for x and y. Solve the equation for the y-intercept, b. Rewrite the equation with the slope for m and the y-intercept for b.

 (Continued from above) For example: Write an equation, if the slope is 2 and the line passes through the point (5, 11). To solve this the steps are as given below: • use slope-intercept form y = mx + b • replace m with the slope y = 2x + b • replace x and y 11= 2* 5 + b • solve for b 1= b • rewrite the equation Y = 2x + 1 The video above will explain in detail with the help of several examples.

 As many of you know, Winpossible's online courses use a unique teaching method where an instructor explains the concepts in any given area to you in his/her own voice and handwriting, just like you see your teacher explain things to you on a blackboard in your classroom. This particular lesson includes the teacher's instruction, practice questions as well as end-of-lesson quizzes for practice. As we mentioned above, you can enroll in our online course in Trigonometry by clicking here. The format of Winpossible's online courses is also very suitable for teachers who are using an interactive whiteboard such as Smartboard on Promethean in their classrooms, because the course lessons can be easily displayed on such interactive whiteboards. Volume pricing is available for schools interested in our online courses. For more information, please contact us at educators@winpossible.com.
