1
STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS y = mx + c

2
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS ALL are of the form y = mx +c**

m is the GRADIENT of the line c is the ‘y intercept’

3
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS We must to be able to DRAW THE GRAPHS**

FIND THE EQUATION FROM A GRAPH

4
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS DRAWING THE GRAPHS WE NEED TO IDENTIFY TWO POINTS**

POINT 1 IS THE y INTERCEPT POINT 2 IS FOUND BY SUBSTITUTING A VALUE FOR x INTO THE FUNCTION DRAWING THE GRAPHS

5
**If we use the example y = 3x - 1**

STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS If we use the example y = 3x - 1 The y intercept is -1 REMEMBER (y = mx + c) So point 1 is (0,-1) If we substitute x = 1 then y = 3 - 1 so y = 2 So point 2 is (1,2)

6
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS NOTE THE TWO POINTS CHOSEN**

THE FINISHED GRAPH LOOKS LIKE THIS NOTE THE TWO POINTS CHOSEN

7
**NOW WE MUST LEARN HOW TO FIND AN EQUATION FROM A GRAPH**

STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS NOW WE MUST LEARN HOW TO FIND AN EQUATION FROM A GRAPH

8
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS SO ‘C’ IS -4 IF WE USE THIS GRAPH**

WE CAN SEE THAT THE LINE CROSSES THE Y AXIS AT THE POINT (0,-4) SO ‘C’ IS -4

9
STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS The gradient (m) is defined as

10
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS We need to find m (the gradient)**

We need to find the change in y We need to find the change in x The change in y is 4 The change in x is 2

11
**STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS So m = 2 Since the gradient is defined as**

12
**We know the equation of the line is**

STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS STRAIGHT LINE GRAPHS As y = mx + c We know the equation of the line is y = 2x - 4

X AND Y INTERCEPTS. INTERCEPT In a function, an intercept is the point at which the graph of the line crosses an axis. If it crosses the y-axis it.
