**3.6 Finding the Equation of a Line**

2
**Slope-Intercept Form Slope y-intercept**

What are the two things needed to write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form? 1. 2. Slope y-intercept

3
**Write an Equation Given a Slope and a Point on the Line**

Example: Set up your equation by substituting in the slope. What can you do to find the y-intercept? Find the y-intercept! What is the equation of the line?

4
**Determine an equation in the form**

of the line passing through the given point P with the given slope m. 1. 2.

5
**Write an Equation Given 2 Points on the Line:**

Example: Find the slope! Set up your equation by substituting in the slope. What can you do to find the y-intercept? Find the y-intercept! What is the equation of the line?

6
**Determine an equation in the form of the line containing the two given points.**

3. 4.

7
**Parallel Lines parallel same**

In your graphing calculator, graph the following: What do you notice about all three graphs? What is the same about each equation? What is different about each equation? So, to sum it up lines have the slope! parallel same
