Chapter 1 Linear Equations and Linear Functions
Qualitative Graphs Graphing Linear Equations Slope Finding Linear Equations Functions

1.1 Qualitative Graphs Definition: Graph without scaling (tick marks and their numbers) on the axis. Medication Costs p Linear Curve price t Time

Independent/Dependent Variables
Price p is dependent on the year t. (p is dependent of t) p is a dependent variable Year t does not depend on the price p. (t is independent of p) t is an independent variable

Examples You are taking a patient’s pulse counting the beats b per minute m. The number of people n that can run m miles. Waiting inline in the cafeteria for lunch. Use n for number of people in front and w for the wait time. Answers: Independent - m, m, n Dependent - b, n, w

Independent/Dependent Variable (time)
Independent most the time. Something happens over time temperature over time, growth, population, etc. Dependent Time it takes for something to happen wait time, time taken to cook, time taken to move a distance, etc

Dependent Variable Independent Variable

Intercepts Average Age of Nurses m A m-intercept A-intercept Average Age n-intercept parabola n t Years Since 1900 An intercept of a curve is the point where the curve intersects an axis (or axes).

Graph Characteristics
Increasing Curve upward from left to right Decreasing Curve downward from left to right Quadrants

Examples Height of a ball thrown straight up Heart rate of a person on a treadmill as the pace is steadily increased The temperature in Celsius of boiled water placed in a freezer The value of a car after a fixed amount of years

1.2 Graphing Linear Equations
Solution, Satisfy, and Solution Set An ordered pair (a,b) is a solution of an equation in x and y if the equation becomes a true statement when a substituted for x and b is substituted for y. We say (a,b) satisfies the equation. Solution set is the set of all solutions of the equation.

Example y = 4x – 2 Find y if x = 2 y = 4(2) – 2 = 8 – 2 = 6
Thus the ordered pair (2,6) satisfies the equation y = 4x – 2 and (2,6) is a solution of the equation y = 4x – 2

Continued Solution set of the equation y = 4x – 2 includes (2,6) x y
Ordered pair (a,b) the independent variable is First (left) followed by the dependent variable in the second position (right).

Graphing Equations y = 5x + 2 Chose values, ex. 0, 1 Organize in table
= 0 + 2 = 2 Solution: (0,2) y = 5(1) + 2 = 5 + 2 = 7 Solution: (1,7) Chose values, ex. 0, 1 Organize in table x y 7 12 17

(3, 17) A graph of an equation in two variables is a visual representation of the solutions of an equation. (2, 12) (1, 7) (0, 2) (-1,-3) (-2,-8)

(1, 9) does not satisfy the equation
(3, 17) (2, 12) (1, 9) (0, 2) (1, 9) does not satisfy the equation (-1,-3) (-2,-8)

Linear Equation Forms Slope-Intercept Form Standard Form General Form
y = mx + b m and b are both constants (m is the slope, b is the y-intercept) Standard Form Ax + By = C A, B, C are integers (A and B are not both equal to zero) General Form Ax + By + C = 0 Point-Slope Form (y – y ) = m (x – x ) Points (x, y) & (x ,y ), slope m 1 1 1 1

General to Slope-Intercept Form
3y - 12x + 9 = 0 3y - 12x = 0 -9 3y – 12x = -9 3y - 12x + 12x = x 3y = x y = x y = 4x - 3 General to Standard Try to get y by itself Divide Simplify

Distributive Law First Distribute 2(2y-3) = 2(3x-4) + 2y
Get y by itself Divide Simplify 2(2y-3) = 2(3x-4) + 2y 4y – 6 = 6x – 8 +2y 4y – 6 -2y = 6x – 8 + 2y -2y 2y – 6 +6 = 6x – 8 +6 2y = 6x – 2 y = 3x - 1

Graphing Equations with Fraction Slopes
y =¾x - 4 Chose x values that are multiples of the denominator. Ex. 0, 4, 8, 12 Make a chart and graph x y 0 y = ¾ (0) – 4 = -4 4 y = ¾ (4) – 4 = -1 8 y = ¾ (8) – 4 = 2

Intercepts of Graphs To find the x-intercept, substitute 0 for y and solve for x. It will always be in the form (x,0). To find the y-intercept, substitute 0 for x and solve for y. It will always be in the form (0,y). y = - ½x +3 0 = - ½x + 3 0 -3 = - ½x -3 -3 *(-2) = - ½x *(-2) 6 = x ~x-intercept (6,0) y = - ½ (0) +3 y = 3 ~y-intercept (0,3) y-intercept (0,3) x-intercept (6,0)

Vertical/Horizontal Lines
If a and b are constants, Vertical lines are in the form x=a Horizontal lines are in the form y=b y=6 x=8

How do we measure steepness?
1.3 How do we measure steepness?

Comparing Steepness Calculate the ratio of vertical to horizontal distance. Patient 1 has his foot elevated 2 feet above the bed over a vertical distance of 2.5 feet. Patient 2 has his foot elevated 1.5 feet above the bed over a vertical distance of 2 feet. Which leg is elevated steeper? Patient 1’s foot is steeper because the ratio is slightly greater. Vertical Distance Horizontal Distance 2 1.5 2.5 2 2 1.5 = .8 = .75 2.5 2

Slope Let (x , y ) and (x , y ) be two points on a line. The slope of the line is: vertical change rise y - y horizontal change run x - x 1 1 2 2 2 1 m = = = 2 1 Run is positive to the right Run is negative to the left Rise is positive going up Rise is negative going down

Increasing vs Decreasing
positive rise positive run or negative rise negative run positive slope positive rise negative run or negative rise positive run negative slope

Finding Slope of a Graph
m = rise run m = 2 1 m = 2 m = y - y x - x m = 3 – 1 2 – 1 m = 2 = 2 1 2 1 (2,3) 2 1 2 (1,1) 1

Investigating Slope of Horizontal/Vertical Lines
2 – Slope of a horizontal line 4 – 2 2 is always 0. 3 – 1 2 Slope of a vertical line 1 – 1 0 is always undefined. m = = = 0 m = = = Undefined y = 2 (2,2) (4,2) x = 1 (1,1) (1,3)

Parallel/Perpendicular Lines
Parallel lines have the same slope m = m Slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals 1 1 m 2 l 2 Parallel lines never intersect 2 1 l 1 l 2 m = 2 = 2 l 1 1 Perpendicular lines form 90 degree (right) angles

Finding Slope of Linear Equations
1.4 Finding Slope of Linear Equations y = -3x - 2 Graph rise run If in slope-intercept form: m = slope, m = -3 b = y-intercept, b = -2 1 m = = = -3 -3 1 -3

Using Slope and y-intercept to graph an equation
Slope = 2 = rise 2 run 1 y-intercept (0, -2) Plot y-intercept (0, b) Use m = to plot 2nd point. Sketch line passing through the 2 points. rise run (0, -2)

Vertical Change Property
For a line y = mx + b, if the run in 1, then the rise is the slope m. m 1 1 m Slope Addition Property For a line y = mx + b, if the independent variable increases by 1, then the dependent variable changes by slope m. y = -6x + 3 , x increases by 1, y changes by -6

Identifying Parallel/Perpendicular Lines
Are the lines 3y = 2x – 6 and 6y – 4x = 24 parallel, perpendicular or neither? 3y = 2x – 6 y = 2/3x - 3 6y – 4x + 4x = 18 +4x 6y = 4x + 24 y = 4/6x + 24/6 y = 2/3x + 4 Get y by itself Divide Simplify Get the equations in slope-intercept form Slope in both equations is 2/3, therefore the lines are parallel.

Finding an equation of a line parallel to a given line
y = 3x – 2 , point (1,6) m = 3, so slope is 3 Parallel lines have similar slopes, so: y = 3x + b Plug in the coordinates for x and y (6) = 3(1) + b 6 -3 = 3 + b -3 b = 3 y = 3x + 3 is parallel to y = 3x -2

Finding an equation of a line perpendicular to a given line
