It’s kind of like whack-a-mole. Whenever you suspend him, he comes back up.

Math is easy to be honest, if you are learning about graphs this is all you need to know:

Point Intercept Form

y=mx+b

y=y point

m=slope

x=x point

b=y intercept

Pretty much if you want to Graph a line, let’s say for example 3=2(5)+2

You would first start with e Y intercept(2) and go up that many up or down from the origin. Then, you take your slope(also 2). Think of the slope as a fraction 2/1. The Numerator is the distance you go up, and the denominator is the distance you go across. If you go up or down doesn’t matter, but the change in x does, becsue it determines the direction of the line(positive, negative, zero slope, no slope). Keep repeating going up(or down) and across and eventually yo will have your line!

Kinds of equations:

Slope Intercept Form:

y=mx+b

This is useful for graphing the line

Point Slope Form:

y+y1=m(x-x1)

This is useful if the problem gives you one point and the slope

Standard Form:

Ax+By=C

Easy to convert into either also lays out your information if you need to find the slope

If you have a line, and you need to find the slope use this easy equation!

y2-y1

____

x2-x1

For example let’s say you have the two points

(2,3)

(3,5)

5-3 =2

__*=*__

3-2 =1

2

_ is the slope

1

Sorry if I nerded out. Also that took so HTML knowledge of invisible characters

**JonnyGamer**#584

Ooh hoo! Looking good!

I’m a math nerdy pants, too

I’m sure you’d love the Numberphile Channel on YouTube

**Hermione**#585

MmmHmm.

You can do HTML awesome! I am self teaching myself.

Math is really easy! It’s fun too!

Woo honors algebra, (which is what I am in) but strangely I learned that last year lol

**memorablechickenyay**#587

im like three years ahead in maths help

just wait for exponential and quadratic and

Hey, @HopscotchRemixer! If you didn’t already know, I’m taking a year long break from the Forum and I’m only coming back monthly to clean-up (it’s Australia Day so I came a little early).

I’d like to be removed from your tag list so that I’m not tagged on posts I won’t read.

Is this possible? I can’t seem to do it myself.

Thanks.

I learned it in 7th grade(because I am in gifted math) but most people learn it in 8th grade and some people learn it in 9th grade.

I wish my school had advanced classes. My old school did, but this is a private school with super small classes. I guess I’ll learn that in a few years.
