2. Warm Up Find the domain and range of each relation, and tell whether the relation is a function. 1) {(3, 4) , (3, 2) , (3, 0) , (3, -2)} 2) 1) D: (3) R: (4, 2, 0, -2) not a function 2) D: (0, 2, 4, -2, -4) R: (0, 2, 4, 2, 4) Relation is a function. CONFIDENTIAL

3. Rate of Change and Slope A rate of change is a ratio that compares the amount of change in a dependent variable to the amount of change in an independent variable. Rate of change = Change in dependent variable Change in independent variable Rates of change can be used to find how quickly costs have increased. CONFIDENTIAL

4. Consumer Application The table shows the cost of mailing a 1-ounce letter in different years. Find the rate of change in cost for each time interval. During which time interval did the cost increase at the greatest rate? Step1: Identify the dependent and independent variables. dependent: cost independent: year Step2: Find the rates of change. change in cost = _25 -22_ = 3 = 1 change in years 1988 – 1985 3 1985 to 1988 1 cent/year Next slide  CONFIDENTIAL

5. change in cost = _25 -25_ = 0 = 0 change in years 1990 – 1988 2 1988 to 1990 0 cent/year change in cost = _29 -25_ = 4 = 4 change in years 1991 – 1990 1 1990 to 1991 4 cents/year change in cost = _37 -29_ = 8 = 0 change in years 2004 – 1991 13 1991 to 2004 8/13 cents/year The cost increased at the greatest rate from 1990 to 1991. CONFIDENTIAL

6. Now you try! 1) The table shows the balance of a bank account on different days of the month. Find the rate of change during each time interval. During which time interval did the balance decrease at the greatest rate? 1) 1 to 6 = 53 dollars/day decrease 6 to 16 = 7.5 dollars/day decrease 16 to 22 = 0 dollars/day decrease 22 to 30 = 4.375 dollars/day decrease During time interval 1 to 6 the balance decreased at the greatest rate. CONFIDENTIAL

7. Finding Rates of Change from a Graph 2) Graph the data from Example 1 and show the rates of change. Graph the ordered pairs. The vertical blue segments show the changes in the dependent variable, and the horizontal green segments show the changes in the independent variable. Notice that the greatest rate of change is represented by the steepest of the red line segments. Also notice that between 1988 and 1990, when the cost did not change, the red line segment is horizontal. CONFIDENTIAL

8. Now you try! 2) Graph the data from the given table and show the rates of change. 2) The x-intercept is -2. The y-intercept is 3. CONFIDENTIAL

9. Slope of a Line If all of the segments have the same rate of change, then they all have the same steepness and together form a straight line. The constant rate of change of a line is called the slope of the line. The rise is the difference in the y-values of two points on a line. The run is the difference in the x-values of two points on a line. The slope of a line is the ratio of rise to run for any two points on the line. slope = rise = Change in y run Change in x CONFIDENTIAL Next slide 

11. Finding Slope 3) Find the slope of the line. Begin at one point and count vertically to find the rise. Then count horizontally to the second point to find the run. It does not matter which point you start with. The slope is the same. slope = 2 = 2 1 slope = -2 = 2 -1 CONFIDENTIAL

13. Finding Slopes of Horizontal and Vertical Lines 4) Find the slope of each line. A) B) slope = rise = 0 = 0 run 4 slope = rise = 2 run 0 You cannot divide by 0. The slope is 0. The slope is undefined. CONFIDENTIAL

15. As shown in the previous examples, slope can be positive, negative, zero, or undefined. You can tell which of these is the case by looking at the graph of a line—you do not need to calculate the slope. CONFIDENTIAL

16. Describing Slope 5) Tell whether the slope of each line is positive, negative, zero, or undefined. A) B) The line falls from left to right. The slope is negative. The line is horizontal. The slope is 0. CONFIDENTIAL

17. Now you try! 5) Tell whether the slope of each line is positive, negative, zero, or undefined. A) B) 5a) The line is vertical. undefined slope. 5b) The rises from left to right. The slope is positive. CONFIDENTIAL

18. The line with slope 4 is steeper than the line with slope 1 | 4 | > 1 2 2 Comparing Slope Remember that the slope of a line is its steepness. Some lines are steeper than others. As the absolute value of the slope increases, the line becomes steeper. As the absolute value of the slope decreases, the line becomes less steep. CONFIDENTIAL
