How to Graph a Line using y=mx+b - Concept

Concept Concept (1)

When given an equation in the form y = mx + b, or slope-intercept form, we should know how to graph a line without having to compute two points on it. If we have an equation in slope-intercept form, we automatically know the slope and the y-intercept and can use that information to more quickly and efficiently graph the line. Another method of graphing a line is using a table of values or the intercepts.
