In this video, learn about the equation of a line.
 [Instructor] So let's now take a look…at the most common kind of coordinate geometry question,…questions involving lines.…So in this video we'll go over the basics…of what you need to know about lines,…also known as linear equations.…So the typical form for the equation of a line…is this, Y equals MX plus B.…So X and Y represents the X coordinate…and the Y coordinate, M represents the slope of the line…and B represents the Yintercept.…
So let's have a look at a typical equation of a line here.…Let's say we have the line Y equals two X plus four…and let's say we went ahead and graphed that.…Well, we know the Yintercept is four,…that means the place where the line hits the Y axis…is four, so that would be the point zero comma four…and then the slope is two.…
So what we mean by a slope of two, it means that we go…up two and over one.…And the way to think about that is to rewrite the slope…as a fraction, so two can be rewritten as two over one.…The way that I like to remember this or teach it…is that this is the rise and this is the run.…
