**Graphing Linear Equations**• What we should learn • Graphing linear equations in one variable • Graphing linear equations in two variables • Graphing using intercepts • Slope • Graphing using slope • Solutions of linear equations • Graphs of absolute value • Solving absolute value equations.**4.1 Graphing Linear Equations**The graph of a point in two variables x and y is the ordered pair (x, y), where x and y are the coordinates of the point. x, the first number, tells how far to the left or right the point is from the vertical axis. y, the second number, tells how far up or down the point is from the vertical axis. For instance, the point (–1, 3) is the point that is 1 to left of vertical axis and is three up from horizontal axis.**4.1 Graphing Linear Equations**(x, y) coordinate system terms y Quadrant I Quadrant II (-3,2) 2 (3,2) x-axis x –3 1 2 3 (1,-2) (-3,-3) origin Quadrant III y-axis Quadrant IV**4.1 Graphing Linear Equations**The graph of an equation in two variables x and y is the set of all points (x, y) whose coordinates satisfy the equation. For instance, the point (–1, 3) is on the graph of 2y – x = 7 because the equation is satisfied when –1 is substituted for x and 3 is substituted for y. That is, 2y – x = 7Original Equation 2(3) – (–1) = 7Substitute for x and y. 7 = 7Equation is satisfied.**4.1 Graphing Linear Equations**To sketch the graph of an equation, • Find several solution points of the equation by substituting various values for x and solving the equation for y. 2.
