2 Linear Functions Linear means “line” Data is displayed as a LINE graph The general equation of a line is y=ax+b ORy=mx+b“a” or “m” is the slope OR RATE OF CHANGE“b” is the y-intercept OR STARTING POINTThe data trend is a STEADY increase or decrease
3 EXAMPLES OF LINEAR FUNCTIONS FROM CLASS Earning hourly wage y=$8.00x+0where y=total pay earned$8.00 is the hourly rate of changex= number of hours workedb= starting pointWrite an linear function if the hourly wage is $9.25 per hour? y=_________________
4 Linear Function for Minimum Wage Y= $9.50x or y=$9.50xwhere “x” is the number of hours worked

10 Bike Weights and Jump Heights In BMX dirt-bike racing, jumping high or “getting air” depends on many factors: the rider’s skill, the angle of the jump, and the weight of the bike. The table below displays data that relate bike weight to maximum height. The activity which follows uses this data to determine a line of best fit to better predict the height from the weight of the bike.
