About This Lesson

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

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

This lesson will show you two 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 the
slope-intercept form of a line.
You can learn about it by watching the math video in
this lesson.

Tip #2

For the equation of a line that we want to
determine, we would usually want that equation
to be in the slope-intercept form (see picture).

This way, we just need to use the given information to find the value of the*slope (***m**) and the *y-intercept (***b**).

After doing so, we can easily determine the equation by substituting**m** and **b **with their
respective value.

This way, we just need to use the given information to find the value of the

After doing so, we can easily determine the equation by substituting
