We'll often need to find the equation of a line given two points it passes through.
For instance, we may be asked to find the equation of the line passing through the points:
Remember that the equation of a line is written: \[y = mx+c\] Where:
To learn how to find a line's equation, the method is explained in a step-by-step tutorial. The method is then written for us and a detailed example given.
Finally, we work our way through a practice exercise for which each solution is explained in a video tutorial.
