>write a proof to show that in the equation y=mx+b, b is the y-intercept
(think about what is true about a y-intercept)

>prove that a vertical line has no slope.
(think about the coordinates of the points on a vertical line and division by 0)

>prove point-slope equation
(any point (X sub2, Y sub2) on the line described must satisfy the equation, and that any point satisfying the equation must be on the line described)
