Lesson Summary:

Learn how to graph a line when given a point on the line and its slope in this video lesson. By using the slope and rise over run, you can find other points on the line and connect the dots to graph it accurately. The lesson provides examples with different slopes, including negative slopes and fractions, and emphasizes the importance of starting from the given point on the line.

Lesson Description:

Shows how to graph a line if you know the slope and one point on the line. This is part 13 of a series of videos about graphing lines.
