1. Graphing Linear Equations By: Christine Berg Edited By: VTHamilton

2. Linear Equation An equation for which the graph is a line

3. Solution Any ordered pair of numbers that makes a linear equation true. (9,0) IS ONE SOLUTION FOR Y = X - 9

4. Linear Equation Example: y = x + 3

5. Graphing Step 1: ~ Three Point Method ~ Choose 3 values for x

6. Graphing Step 2: Find solutions using table y = x + 3 Y | X 0 1 2

7. Graphing Step 3: Graph the points from the table (0,3) (1,4) (2,5)

8. Graphing Step 4: Draw a line to connect them

9. Try These • Graph using a table (3 point method) 1) y = x + 3 2) y = x - 4

10. X-intercept Where the line crosses the x-axis

11. X-intercept The x-intercept has a y coordinate of ZERO

12. X-intercept To find the x-intercept, plug in ZERO for y and solve

13. Slope Describes the steepness of a line

14. Slope Equal to: Rise Run

15. Rise The change vertically, the change in y

16. Run The change horizontally or the change in x

17. Finding Slope Step 1: Find 2 points on a line (2, 3) (5, 4) (x1, y1) (x2, y2)

18. Finding Slope Step 2: Find the RISE between these 2 points Y2 - Y1 = 4 - 3 = 1

19. Finding Slope Step 3: Find the RUN between these 2 points X2 - X1 = 5 - 2 = 3

20. Finding Slope Step 4: Write the RISE over RUN as a ratio Y2 - Y1= 1 X2 - X1 3

21. Y-intercept Where the line crosses the y-axis

22. Y-intercept The y-intercept has an x-coordinate of ZERO

23. Y-intercept To find the y-intercept, plug in ZERO for x and solve

24. Slope-Intercept y = mx + b m = slope b = y-intercept

25. Step 1: Mark a point on the y-intercept

26. Step 2: Define slope as a fraction...

27. Step 4: Denominator is the horizontal change (RUN)

28. Step 5: Graph at least 3 points and connect the dots
