2 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Warm Up Interpret the graph. A rocket is fired into the air. Possible answer: The rocket’s speed increases until gravity gradually slows the rocket and causes it to fall to the ground. Rocket‘s Altitude Time y x

3 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions AF3.3 Graph linear functions, noting that the vertical change (change in y-value) per unit of horizontal change (change in x-value) is always the same and know that the ratio (“rise over run”) is called the slope of a graph. California Standards

4 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Vocabulary linear equation linear function

5 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Recall that the solution of an equation with one variable is the value of the variable that makes the equation true. The solutions of an equation with two variables are the ordered pairs that make the equation true. When these ordered pairs form a line, the equation is called a linear equation. A function described by a linear equation is a linear function. To graph a linear function, plot some solutions of the related linear equation, then draw a line through them. The line represents all of the ordered pair solutions of the equation.

6 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions For example, the function that relates distance d, rate r, and time t is described by the linear equation d = rt. This graph shows solutions of this equation when r = 2 feet per second. Time (s) Distance (ft)

8 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Not all linear equations describe functions. The graphs of some linear equations are vertical lines, which do not pass the vertical line test. Helpful Hint

12 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions The fastest-moving tectonic plates on Earth move apart at a rate of 15 centimeters per year. Scientists began studying two parts of these plates when they were 30 centimeters apart. Write a linear function that describes the movement of the plates over time. Then make a graph to show the movement over 4 years. Additional Example 2: Earth Science Application Let x represent the input and y represent the output. The function is y = 15x + 30, where x is the number of years and y is the total distance apart the two plates are.

15 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Check It Out! Example 2 Dogs are considered to age 7 years for each human year. If a dog is 3 years old today, how old in human years will it be in 4 more years? Write a linear equation which would show this relationship. Then make a graph to show how the dog will age in human years over the next 4 years. Let x represent the input and y represent the output. The function is y = 7x + 21, where x is the number of years from now and y is the total age of the dog in human years.

18 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Lesson Quiz: Part I Graph the linear functions. 1. y = 3x – 4 2. y = –x + 4 3. y = 2 y = 3x – 4 y = –x +4 y = 2

19 Holt CA Course 1 7-3 Graphing Linear Functions Lesson Quiz: Part II 4. The temperature of a liquid is decreasing at a rate of 12°F per hour. Susan begins measuring the liquid at 200°F. Write a linear function that describes the change in temperature over time. Then make a graph to show the temperature over 5 hours. y = 200 – 12x
