Finding the equation of a straight-line graph from its intercept and slope

Linear graphs and models

Year 11

This is the next video in the series which looks at linear relations for the General Maths Units 1 and 2 course. Finding the equation of a straight line graph from its intercept and slope is a really interesting part of the course and I love this stuff! I take a look at how to find the equation of the line by reading off the intercept on the y-axis and then draw triangles to find the gradient. Substituting this into the equation and we're done! There are a number of worked examples which are all explained in my no nonsense, easy to understand way!
