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 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 the equation of a perpendicular & parallel line

This video shows how to find the equation of the line perpendicular and parallel to a given line. The video starts off with an example, given the lines and the slopes (m). When 2 lines are parallel to each other, they have the same slope. When 2 lines are perpendicular to each other, the slopes multiplied together will give -1. Knowing these rules, the tutorial maker provides an example with numbers. He then leads each step of the process. Each step is written out in either black, red, blue o...

How To: Find the equation of a tangent line

This is the video about how to find the equation of a tangent line. As you may recall, a line which is tangent to a curve at a point a, must have the same slope as the curve. Therefore, the slope of the tangent is m = lim f(a + h) - f(a) h-->0 h Since the slope equation of the tangent line is exactly the same as the derivative definition, an easier way to find the tangent line is to differentiate using the rules on the function f. For example, Find the slope of a line tangent to the function ...

How To: Tie a spinner bait on a fishing line

Spinner bait are good for attracting and catching bass when fishing. In order to have the lure and the bait working correctly when using this type of bait, you will have to attach the bait directly to the lure. This can be done using the improved fisherman knot. After threading the line through the bait, you should leave about 6-8 inches of line to tie the knot. Begin by making about 5 twists around the line and then thread the line through the hole created below the twists. After threading t...

Plug the slope and the points into another formula given in green. The tutorial maker provides a tip that one can use x1 and y1 or x2 and y2, however, it must be consistent. After, solve...

How To: Find the equation of a line

In this video the instructor shows how to find the equation of the line given its slope and a point that lies on it. If the slope of the line is m and the point that lies on it is (x,y) then you can find the equation of the line by substituting the values in the slope-intercept form of an equation which is y = mx + b. Now substitute the values in the above equation and solve it for the value if the y-intercept y. Now you have the slope m and y intercept b. Substitute these values in the gener...

How To: Find the equation of a line easily

This is the video about how to Find the equation of a line. The equation of a line with a defined slope m can also be written as follows: y = mx + b where m is the slope of the line and b is the y intercept of the graph of the line. The above form is called the slope intercept form of a line. Step1 Set m to a fixed value (m = 1) and change b (b = 1, 2, 3, 4, -1, -2, -3, -4). Compare each value of b to the y-intercept of the line obtained. Step2 Set b to a fixed value (b = 1) and change m (m =...

How To: Derive the equation of a straight line

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to derive a straight line equation. He shows us a process that consists of two steps. In step one he uses the slope formula to obtain the slope of the line which is the ratio of difference of y-coordinates and difference of x-coordinates. Now in the step two he uses the slope he obtained in the first step and equates it two a another slope derivation which uses a generic x, y variables and a real point. Now solving this equation he arrives at the equa...

In this tutorial the instructor shows how to write a Slope-intercept equation that is perpendicular to a line and passes through a point. He shows how to do this by solving an example with sample values. He says that the slope of a line perpendicular to the original line is the negative inverse of the slope of original line. Now he writes down the slope value in the general equation y = mx + c, and by substituting the sample value in the equation he obtains the value of the Y-intercept c, thu...

How To: Graph negative numbers on number line

The video begins with a piece of paper with questions 6 and 7 on from section 1.3. The narrator introduces these two questions as both having to do with graphing on a number line.

She starts by showing -3 as an example, and then draws a black dot on the line at the point of the number 3. She then illu...

How To: Plot a real number on a number line

This video tells you how to plot a real number on a number line. For example consider -3.1. You know -3.1 lies between -3 and -4. You also know -3.1 lies very close or next to 3. So all you have to do is, put a point just before -3. Now you have marked -3.1 on a number line. Similarly you can point any real number on a number line. It is quite an easy job to plot real numbers on a number line.
