This song is available on Triangle Head by The Trigs.
This song covers linear equations in both slope-intercept and point-slope forms.
Y=MX+B, That's the slope intercept equation you see
M is the slope, it's an easy one
Just remember that the rise goes over the run
B is the y intercept, it's where the line crosses the y-axis
Put them together and what have you got?
You've got the slope-intercept equation
So let's talk lines and equations
All about points and intercepts
We'll find the slope and we'll use the X
To find the Y that matches it
But what if we don't know B, the slope-intercept is out of reach
So pick a point, and plug it in
To the good old point-slope equation
On the left you've got y minus y one on the right m times x minus x one
So plug it in and solve for Y
And watch the slope-intercept form appear before your very eyes
