The standard linear equation is in the form of A * x + B * y = C. This file demonstrates the effects of modifying one or more of the coefficients of the equation. Move the sliders to set the equation you wish to view. Find two points on the line. P1(____, ____) and P2(_____, _____) Compute the slope: . . . . . . ..y1 - y2 ________ - _________ . . m = ---------- = ------------------------------ . . . . . . .x1 - x2 ________ - _________ Find the y-intercept: ( 0, _____) Rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form: y = ____ x + ____
