4 1.1 Qualitative Graphs Definition: Graph without scaling (tick marks and their numbers) on the axis. price Time Medication Costs Linear Curve p t

5 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

6 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

7 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

8 Dependent Variable Independent Variable

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

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

11 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

12 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.

13 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

14 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).

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

16 (3, 17) (2, 12) (1, 7) (0, 2) (-1,-3) (-2,-8)

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

18 (3, 17) (2, 12) (1, 9) (0, 2) (-1,-3) (-2,-8) (1, 9) does not satisfy the equation

19 Linear Equation Forms Slope-Intercept 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 A, B, C are integers (A and B are not both equal to zero) Point-Slope Form (y – y ) = m (x – x ) Points (x, y) & (x,y ), slope m 11 11

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

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

22 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 0y = ¾ (0) – 4 = -4 4y = ¾ (4) – 4 = -1 8y = ¾ (8) – 4 = 2

23 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-intercept (0,3) x-intercept (6,0) y = - ½x +3 0 = - ½x = - ½x *(-2) = - ½x *(-2) 6 = x ~x-intercept (6,0) y = - ½ (0) +3 y = 3 ~y-intercept (0,3)

24 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

25 How do we measure steepness? 1.3

26 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 =.8 =.75

27 Slope Let (x, y ) and (x, y ) be two points on a line. The slope of the line is: vertical change risey - y horizontal change runx - x m = = = Run is positiveto the right Run is negativeto the left Rise is positivegoing up Rise is negative going down

28 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

31 Parallel/Perpendicular Lines Parallel lines have the same slope m = m Slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals1 m2 m = = l 2 l 1 1 l 2 l Perpendicular lines form 90 degree (right) angles Parallel lines never intersect

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

33 Using Slope and y-intercept to graph an equation Slope = 2 = rise 2 run 1 y-intercept (0, -2) (0, -2) 1.Plot y-intercept (0, b) 2.Use m = to plot 2 nd point. 3.Sketch line passing through the 2 points. rise run

34 Vertical Change Property For a line y = mx + b, if the run in 1, then the rise is the slope m. 1 m 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

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

42 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

43 Finding an equation of a line perpendicular to a given line y = ½ x – 6, point (2,-2) Slopes of perpendicular lines are opposite reciprocals: flip the numerator and denominator and change the sign or -2 y = -2x + b (-2) = -2(2) + b = -4 + b +4 2 = b, y = -2x + 2 is perpendicular to y = ½ x

44 Point-slope Form If a non-vertical line has a slope m and contains the point (x,y ), then the equation of the line is: (y - y ) = m (x - x ) Given a point and the slope: m = 4point (6,-3) y – (-3) = 4 (x - 6 ) y = 4x – y = 4x –
