How To: Draw a perpendicular line from a point on a line

For people who are learning how to do basic geometry, this video will show you how to draw a perpendicular line from a point on a line using only a compass and pencil. You should first take your compass and place it on the center of the point on the line, drawing an even semicircle around the point. Then, finding the points where the semicircle intersects your original line, place the center of your compass on this point and then draw some arcs over where your point is. Repeat this on both si...

How To: Do trigger point massage

Trigger point massage is a good technique to bring immediate relief to conditions like frozen shoulder, stiff neck, tennis elbow and headaches. Trigger points form whenever a muscle or joint is stressed beyond its capacity to recover. They are usually believed to be the result of an accumulation of toxic waste around a nerve ending. Active trigger points will create pain and discomfort.

How To: Graph a line using points and slope

Given a point through which a line passes and the value of its slope you can graph the line. To do this first plot the given line. Now taking the slope and using the rise over run method plot a second point. Connect these two points and this gives you the graph of the line. Extend this line further on both sides to get the complete line. The point where this line cuts the x-axes is called the x-intercept and the point where this line cuts the y-axes is called the y-intercept. The important po...

Use the quadratic equation: finding the mirror point

In this video the tutor shows how to find the mirror point using a quadratic equation. He says that to graph a parabola you need to find the mirror point symmetrical to the Y-intercept. Now he explains how to find a mirror point using an example with sample values. He begins with saying that the Y-coordinate of the mirror point is same as the Y-coordinate of the Y-intercept. Now you have to find the x coordinate of the mirror point which he shows that it is double the x-coordinate of the vert...

How To: Find if a point lies on a line in point slope form

In this tutorial, the author shows how to determine if a point lies on a given line which is in Point Slope Form. To show the method he takes a sample point order pair and an equation of a line in its point slope form. Now he substitutes the value of the x, y order pair and the equation of the line, and solves the equation on both the sides. If both sides match it means that the point lies on the given line, or else it does not lie on the current line. In this video, the instructor shows how ...

How To: Find extra points for a parabola (quadractic equation)

This is a mathematical educational video on how to find extra points for a parabola. In the first two examples there is no need for finding extra points as they have five points and have zeros of the parabola. In example 3 we need to find extra points. The equation is y=4xsquare-4x+4. You can take x= -1 and get the value for y. You will get a point now. Similarly you can substitute -2 for x in the same equation and get the value for y. Now you get another point. Now you can draw the parabola.

How To: Fold an origami modular dollar 5- or 6-point star

You're going to need a little money to make this pointed origami star, but not that much, unless you Mr. Moneybags or something. To keep this cheap, you can use dollar bills — five of them, which means five dollars. You can use five dollar bills, but that would mean you'd have a twenty-five dollar paper star, and unless you plan on selling it for fifty, you might just want to use some fake bills. Anything that is rectangular in shape will do. You can make a 5-pointed star or upgrade to the 6-...

Then you pull the th...

How To: Find the equation of a line in point-slope form

When you are given a point through which a line passes and the slope of that line, you can calculate the equation of that line. The general equation to solve this kind of equations is called as point-slope form. The point slope of a line passing through (a, b) with slope of m is (y - b) = m * (x - a). Now substituting the values in the above equation you can obtain the equation of the line in terms of x and y. In case you are given with two points first find the slope of the line which is the...

How To: Find a missing coordinate given: coordinate & equation

In this video, the instructor shows how to find an unknown coordinate given the other coordinate of that point and the equation that passes thought the point. A point is said to lie on the graph, if the point can satisfy that equation of the line. To check if a particular point satisfies an equation, all you have to do is substitute the value of the point in that equation and check if it validates the equation. Now, substitute the given point with an unknown coordinate in that equation. If th...

How To: Convert temperature using a point slope equation

In this video the instructor shows how to convert temperature using the point slope form. In this kind of problem sometimes you are given a temperature in Fahrenheit and its equivalent in Celsius and an other temperature similarly in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. Now you are asked to find a linear equation for these pair of temperatures. To solve these kind of problems assume that the given temperatures represent the point (x, y). Now you have two points. Substitute this value in the point slo...

How To: Find the slope of a line given 2 points with fractions

In this video tutorial the instructor shows how to find the slope of a line given two points with fractional values. To do this first name your two points as point 1 with coordinates as x1, y1 and point 2 with coordinates x2, y2. Then substitute the values in the equation of the slope which is slope m = (y2 - y1) / (x2 - x1). Now all you have to do is simply the fraction after substituting the point values. Be careful about the signs while substituting in the formula. Now finally after solvin...

How To: Graph a system of linear equations

Given a equation of a line, you can graph the line. A system of equations is nothing but equations of more than one line. In a single equation all the points that lie on the line, satisfy the equation of the line. Similarly a solution of a system of equations is points that satisfy each and every equation of that system. A system of equations can have a single point as solution when the lines intersect at a common point, or have a unlimited points in solution when the lines overlap on each ot...

How To: Graph an equation in point-slope form

This video tells you how to draft an equation in point-slope form. Consider the equation (y+4) = 2(x+7) for example. The formula for the point-slope form is (y-y1) = m(x-x1). To plot the graph you have to identify m the slope, the x intercept x1 and the y intercept y1. In this equation the slope is 2 and (x1,y1). The x intercept according to the formula is -x1 but the given value is +7 so you have to figure out what will give you +7,only -(-7) can give you +7 so the point is -7 and now the y ...
