POINT-SLOPE FORM y – y1 = m ( x – x1 )

Bell Work m = 8 , ( 7, 4 ) m = -10 , ( 6, -8 ) m = 5 , ( 9 , 3 )
Using the point-slope form, find the equation of the line with the given conditions. Express your answer in y=mx + b. Having a slope of 3 and passing through the point ( 4, 5 ). Having a slope of -2 and passing through the point ( - 1, 6 ) m = 8 , ( 7, 4 ) m = -10 , ( 6, -8 ) m = 5 , ( 9 , 3 )

Take Note If the given is the slope and a point on the line, we can use the point-slope form which is. y – y1 = m ( x – x1 )

What if the given slope is a fraction?
Try this! Find the equation of the line having a slope of ¾ and passing through ( 2, 5 ).

Solution Given : m = ¾ and passing through ( 2,5 ) y – y1 = m ( x – x1 ) y – 5 = ¾ ( x – 2 ) y – 5 = ¾ x – 6/4 y = ¾ x – 6/4 + 5 y = ¾ x + 7/2

Another solution y – y1 = m ( x – x1 ) y – 5 = ¾ ( x – 2 )
m = ¾ and passing through ( 2, 5 ) y – y1 = m ( x – x1 ) y – 5 = ¾ ( x – 2 ) 4 ( y – 5 ) = 3 ( x – 2 ) 4y – 20 = 3x – 6 4y = 3x – 4y = 3x + 14 y = ¾ x + 7/ 2

Try this! Find the equation of the line having a slope of -2/7 and passing through ( - 1, - 4 )

Think – Pair - Share m = 2/3 ( 4, 7 ) m = ¼ ( 3, 1) m = 3/5 ( -2, 4)
Find the equation of the line given the slope and a point. m = 2/3 ( 4, 7 ) m = ¼ ( 3, 1) m = 3/5 ( -2, 4) m = - 1/8 ( 3, -2) m = ½ ( 0, -23 )

Finding Slopes and y - intercepts from Equations
y = mx + b

Objectives: Change a linear equation to the form y = mx + b. Determine the slope of a line and the y-intercept from the given equations.

Thoughts to Ponder To determine the slope and
y – intercept from a given equation, solve the equation for y in terms of x and express the resulting equation in the form y = mx + b. The coefficient of the x-term is the slope (m) and the constant term b represents the y-intercept.

Example: Find the slope of the line and y-intercept of 8x + y = 10.
Solution: Given: 8x + y = 10 y = mx + b y = -8x + 10 Therefore the slope is -8 and the y-intercept is 10.

Example Find the slope and y-intercept in the line 2x + 2y = 12 Solution: 2x + 2y = 12 2y = -2x y = -x + 6 Slope = -1 : y-intercept = 6

Standard Form of Linear Equations
Ax + By = C

Mathematical Concepts
Standard Form Ax + By = C This is one of the two forms of a linear equation. The letters A, B, and C represent numbers. The numbers may not be fractions.

Examples Change the equation y = -2x + 5 in Standard Form Given: y = -2x + 5 Solution: Just put all the variable terms on the left side of the equation. Note: x – term must comes first Answer: 2x + y = 5

Examples 2. Change the equation y = 3x - 8 in Standard Form Given: y = 3x - 8 Solution: Just put all the variable terms on the left side of the equation. Note: the value of a should always be positive -3x + y = -8 -3x + y = -8 Multiply by -1 3x – y = 8

Examples 2/3 x + y = -7 Multiply by 3 2x + 3y = -21
3. Change the equation y = -2/3x - 7 in Standard Form Given: y = -2/3 x - 7 Solution: Just put all the variable terms on the left side of the equation. Note: there must be no fractions in A, B, or C 2/3 x + y = -7 2/3 x + y = Multiply by 3 2x + 3y = -21
