Lesson Summary:

In this lesson, the instructor teaches how to make a table of ordered pairs solutions for an equation solved for y, and how to plot those on the x-y plane and graph the line. The video includes how to deal with equations with fractions and how to choose convenient x values in the chart to make computation and graphing points easier. The video is part of a series of videos about graphing lines.

Lesson Description:

Covers how to make a table of ordered pair solutions if the equation is solved for y, how to plot those on the x-y plane and graph the line. Includes equations with fractions and how to choose convenient values of x in the chart to make computation and graphing points easier. This is part 4 of a series of videos about graphing lines.
