# Drawing Linear Equations Worksheets

How to Draw a Line Based on a Point it Passes Through and Slope - There are three different ways to draw a line of a graph. The first is the two-point form; the second is the slope-intercept form and slope-point form. The slope-point form is the easiest way to draw a line. In this case, you will need a point through which the line is passing and its slope or gradient. The general form of a straight line is given by; y=mx+c. Here, "m" is the slope or gradient, and "c" is the y-intercept. As we are learning the slope-point form, you will already have the value of "m" in the question. Now, to find the y-intercept, you substitute the value of "m" and the point in the places of "x" and "y." After solving for "c," you will get the y-intercept. You can then substitute both the value of m and c into the general form of a straight line. Now, you have the y-intercept, slope, and one point. You can also find the x-intercept by replacing y with 0. With these points you can then easily draw a straight line.

• ### Basic Lesson

Demonstrates the concept drawing lines based on slope and point intersections. Practice problems are provided. A line passes through the point (1, 5). The line has a slope of 2. Draw the line.

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Explores the use of parallel lines to plot and draw lines. Practice problems are provided. First form equation. Two parallel lines have same slope, so slope of two lines are same.

#### What Are Variables?

A variable is a symbol that represents a number. It's easiest to use letters that remind you what they stand for: such as n for number of apples, d is the distance traveled, t for time. You might say that s stands for the side-length of a square.
