# Equation of a Line Worksheets

What Can You Do with the Equation of a Line? Every line, dot, or curve that is drawn on the coordinate grid system has an equation. Even graphical diagrams as simple as a dot have equations and coordinates of their variables. The equation of a line can be beneficial in many aspects. The equation can be used to determine the position of the line on the graphs. One can solve a line’s equation for its coordinates and plot the line on the graph to know the exact position and location of the line on the graph and the quadrant in which it lies. Writing the equation of a line in the ideal line equation form can also determine its slope. By carefully examining the equation and looking at its degree and number variables, it can be easily determined whether the equation is linear or curvy linear. In this way, we can also determine the nature of the equation that is homogenous or heterogeneous.

• ### Basic Lesson

Guides students through finding the equations of lines using slope and the y-intercept. Find the equation of the line whose slope is 4 and the coordinates of the y-intercept are (0, 2).

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Demonstrates how to find and use slope. Given that the slope of a line is -3 and the line passes through the point (-2,4), write the equation of the line. The slope: m = -3, The point (x1 ,y1) = (-2,4)
