Graphing linear equations using slope and intercept Graphing an equation by using its slope and  y- intercept is usually quite easy.  1. State the equation in  y- form.  2. Locate the  y -intercept on the graph (that is, one of the points on the line).  3. Write the slope as a ratio (fraction) and use it to locate other points on the line.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
