OBJECTIVES 3.4 Equations of Lines Slide 3Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc. aGiven an equation in the form y = mx + b find the slope and the y-intercept; find an equation of a line when the slope and the y-intercept are given. bFind an equation of a line when the slope and a point on the line are given. cFind an equation of a line when two points on the line are given.

The equation y= mx + b is called the slope-intercept equation. The slope is m and the y-intercept is (0, b). 3.4 Equations of Lines The Slope-Intercept Equation: y = mx + b Slide 4Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.

EXAMPLE Solution We first solve for y: 3x – 4y = 9 –4y = –3x + 9 –4 –4 Subtracting 3x Dividing by –4 3.4 Equations of Lines a Given an equation in the form y = mx + b find the slope and the y-intercept AFind the slope and the y-intercept of 3x – 4y = 9. (continued) Slide 5Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.

EXAMPLE Solution The slope is The y-intercept is 3.4 Equations of Lines a Given an equation in the form y = mx + b find the slope and the y-intercept AFind the slope and the y-intercept of 3x – 4y = 9. Slide 6Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.

EXAMPLE Solution: We use the slope- intercept equation. Substitute –3.2 for m and 5 for b: y = mx + b y = –3.2x + 5. Substituting 3.4 Equations of Lines a Find an equation of a line when the slope and the y-intercept are given. BA line has slope –3.2 and y-intercept (0, 5). Find an equation of the line.

EXAMPLE Solution: We use the slope-intercept equation. Substitute 0 for m and 4 for b: y = mx + b y = 0x + 4. Substituting y = 4 3.4 Equations of Lines a Find an equation of a line when the slope and the y-intercept are given. CA line has slope 0 and y-intercept (0, 4). Find an equation of the line. Slide 8Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.

EXAMPLE Solution: We use the slope-intercept equation. Substitute for m and 0 for b: y = mx + b y = x + 0. Substituting 3.4 Equations of Lines a Find an equation of a line when the slope and the y-intercept are given. DA line has slope and y-intercept (0, 0). Find an equation of the line. Slide 9Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.

EXAMPLE Solution: The slope is 3, so the equation is y = 3x + b. The equation is true for (2, 7). Using the point (2, 7), substitute 2 for x and 7 for y and solve for b. y = 3x + b Substituting 3 for m. 7 = 3(2) + b Substituting 2 for x and 7 for y 7 = 6 + b 1 = b Solving for b The equation is y = 3x + 1. 3.4 Equations of Lines b Find an equation of a line when the slope and a point on the line are given. EFind an equation of the line with slope 3 that contains the point (2, 7). Slide 10Copyright 2011, 2007, 2003, 1999 Pearson Education, Inc.
