What is a Linear Equation?

1. What is a Linear Equation?

Most cars won't be able to run for more than 250,000 miles, so how much longer will your car live? Linear Equations are the most basic kind of algebraic function and can help you answer questions exactly like this. Learn about what they look like, how they come up in your life and why they are powerful tools.

Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

2. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing

Do you know what to do if an equation doesn't look like y=mx+b?! If not, then this video is for you. Chances are the equation is in standard form, so we'll learn how to use standard form equations, how to graph them and why they can be helpful.

Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule

3. Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule

Just because you now know what a linear equation is doesn't mean that you are a master! This video will help you learn how to apply your knowledge of linear equations in more abstract algebraic ways.

Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

4. Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More

There are two special cases when it comes to slopes on the xy plane: horizontal and vertical lines. Without any more information, these examples can be pretty confusing. But with a little instruction, they end up being some of the easiest lines to graph!

How to Write a Linear Equation

5. How to Write a Linear Equation

Simply knowing how to take a linear equation and graph it is only half of the battle. You should also be able to come up with the equation if you're given the right information.
