Lines Prepared by Doron Shahar

Warm-up: Class Notes Page 25 Today we are starting to learn about lines. In honor of that, here are several one-liners: I wondered why the Frisbee was getting bigger, and then it hit me. I had a dream I was eating a giant marshmallow, and when I woke up my pillow was missing! Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time! I think I've forgotten this before? How’s that new line I introduced you to? Ohh, she goes on forever. Prepared by Doron Shahar

Standard form Every line can be written in standard form. This is not true of the other two forms. In particular, verticals lines can only be written in standard form, because their slope is undefined. It is difficult to get the equation of a line directly into standard form given a graph or “usual” information. Instead, you will need to be able to get the equations of lines into and out of this form. Prepared by Doron Shahar

Point-slope to Standard form To get the equation of a line from point-slope form into standard form, first convert it into slope-intercept form as we have already learned. Then proceed as on the next slide to convert the equation into standard form. Prepared by Doron Shahar

Standard to Slope-intercept form One reason for converting the equation of a line from Standard form to slope-intercept form is to find the slope of the line. It also helps if you are trying to graph the line. 2.3.1 Find the slope of the x−12y = −3. Slope-intercept form Slope: Prepared by Doron Shahar
