1 Graphing Linear Equations By: Christine Berg Edited By: VTHamilton

2 Linear Equation An equation for which the graph is a line

3 Solution Any ordered pair of numbers that makes a linear equation true. (9,0) IS ONE SOLUTION FOR Y = X - 9

4 Linear Equation Example: y = x + 3

5 Graphing Step 1: ~ Three Point Method ~ Choose 3 values for x

6 Graphing Step 2: Find solutions using table y = x + 3 Y | X 0 1 2

7 Graphing Step 3: Graph the points from the table (0,3) (1,4) (2,5)

8 Graphing Step 4: Draw a line to connect them

9 Try These Graph using a table (3 point method) 1) y = x + 3 2) y = x - 4

10 X-intercept Where the line crosses the x-axis

11 X-intercept The x-intercept has a y coordinate of ZERO

12 X-intercept To find the x- intercept, plug in ZERO for y and solve

13 Slope Describes the steepness of a line

14 Slope Equal to: Rise Run

15 Rise The change vertically, the change in y

16 Run The change horizontally or the change in x

17 Finding Slope Step 1: Find 2 points on a line (2, 3) (5, 4) (x 1, y 1 ) (x 2, y 2 )

18 Finding Slope Step 2: Find the RISE between these 2 points Y 2 - Y 1 = = 1

19 Finding Slope Step 3: Find the RUN between these 2 points X 2 - X 1 = = 3

20 Finding Slope Step 4: Write the RISE over RUN as a ratio Y 2 - Y 1 = 1 X 2 - X 1 3

21 Y-intercept Where the line crosses the y-axis

22 Y-intercept The y-intercept has an x-coordinate of ZERO

23 Y-intercept To find the y- intercept, plug in ZERO for x and solve

24 Slope-Intercept y = mx + b m = slope b = y-intercept

25 Step 1: Mark a point on the y-intercept

26 Step 2: Define slope as a fraction...

27 Step 3: Numerator is the vertical change (RISE)

28 Step 4: Denominator is the horizontal change (RUN)

29 Step 5: Graph at least 3 points and connect the dots
