Determine the Y-Intercept Given an Equation in Point-Slope Form
The instructor demonstrates how to find the y-intercept of an equation of a line that is given in point slope form. One example is modeled using a step by step approach.
This video explains how to use point-slope form when writing a linear equation. Point-slope form can be written using one point and the slope or when given two points since we can calculate the slope from the two points. Once we have an equation in point-slope form, it can be rewritten in slope-intercept or standard form. (1:12)
