Lesson 6: Slope-intercept form intro (ASL)# Graphing lines from slope-intercept form review

Slope intercept form is y=mx+b, where m is slope and b is the y-intercept. We can use this form of a linear equation to draw the graph of that equation on the x-y coordinate plane.

Slope intercept form is y, equals, m, x, plus, b, where m is slope and b is the y-intercept.

Slope-intercept form is nice when you're drawing graphs.

For example, imagine we're given the equation y, equals, 2, x, plus, 7 and asked to graph it.

Straight from the equation, we know the y-intercept is 7.

And we know the slope is 2.

So, for every one unit we go to the right, we must go up two units:

Here is our final graph:
