In this video the instructor teaches about equivalent fractions. When given a problem to determine if two fractions are equivalent fractions the first thing to do is write them in the lowest terms. A fraction is said to be in the lowest terms if the greatest common divisor of both numerator and denominator is one. So cancel the common factors in the numerator and the denominator till you arrive at the lowest form and finally compare them to determine if they are equivalent. An equivalent frac...

How To: Find the slope given 2 points

This tutorial will show you how to determine the slope of a line if you are given two coordinates on a coordinate plane. You should first find the location of each point on the plane, remembering that the coordinates are in the format of x-axis (or horizontal movement), followed by y-axis (vertical movement). After plotting both these points, you should draw a straight line between these two points and then determine the slope of this line by taking the rise over the run of the line.
