Naming horizontal and vertical lines
y 1 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 4 3 2 5 (x,y) (3,4) (3,1) x y = -2 (-4,-2) (0,-2) (-4,-2) (3,-5) x = 3 Back to Main Page

Now try these lines y (x,y) (-2,4) y = 2 (-2,1) x (-4,2) (0,2) (-4,2)
-5 -4 -3 -2 -1 4 3 2 5 (x,y) (-2,4) y = 2 (-2,1) x (-4,2) (0,2) (-4,2) (-2,-5) x = -2 Back to Main Page

See if you can name lines 1 to 5
(x,y) y x = 1 x = 5 4 x = -4 3 2 y = 1 1 1 x -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 5 -1 -2 -3 y = -4 4 -4 -5 5 2 3 Back to Main Page

Diagonal Lines (x,y) y y = x (-3,3) (3,3) (-1,1) (1,1) x (2,-2)
-5 -4 -3 -2 -1 4 3 2 5 y = x (-3,3) (3,3) (-1,1) (1,1) x (2,-2) (-3,-3) (-4,-3) (0,1) (2,3) y = -x Back to Main Page

Now see if you can identify these diagonal lines
y = x + 1 1 -5 -4 -3 -2 -1 4 3 2 5 3 y = x - 1 y = - x - 2 x y = -x + 2 4 1 2 Back to Main Page

y = mx + c Every straight line can be written in this form. To do this the values for m and c must be found. c is known as the intercept y = mx + c m is known as the gradient Back to Main Page

y x Finding m and c Find the Value of c
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 –7 –6 –5 –4 –3 –2 –1 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 Find the Value of c This is the point at which the line crosses the y-axis. So c = 3 Find the Value of m The gradient means the rate at which the line is climbing. Each time the lines moves 1 place to the right, it climbs up by 2 places. y = 2x +3 y = mx +c So m = 2 Back to Main Page

y x Finding m and c Find the Value of c
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 –7 –6 –5 –4 –3 –2 –1 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 Find the Value of c This is the point at which the line crosses the y-axis. y = mx +c y = 2x +3 So c = 2 Find the Value of m The gradient means the rate at which the line is climbing. Each time the line moves 1 place to the right, it moves down by 1 place. So m = -1 Back to Main Page

y x Some Lines to Identify 1 2 y = x + 2 1 -1 y = x - 1 -2 1
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 –7 –6 –5 –4 –3 –2 –1 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 Line 1 m = c = Equation: 1 2 y = x + 2 Line 2 m = c = Equation: 1 -1 y = x - 1 Line 3 m = c = Equation: -2 1 y = -2x + 1 Back to Main Page

Further Exercise Sketch the following graphs by using y=mx + c
1) y = x + 4 2) y = x - 2 3) y = 2x + 1 4) y = 2x – 3 5) y = 3x – 2 6) y = 1 – x 7) y = 3 – 2x 8) y = 3x 9) y = x + 2 2 10) y = - x + 1 Back to Main Page

The Table Method We can use an equation of a line to plot a graph by substituting values of x into it. Example y = 2x + 1 x = y = 2(0) y = 1 x 1 2 y 3 5 x = y = 2(1) y = 3 x = y = 2(2) y = 5 Now you just have to plot the points on to a graph! Back to Main Page

The Table Method x 1 2 y 1 3 5 4 3 2 1 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 -1 -2
1 2 y 4 3 1 3 5 2 1 -4 -3 -2 -1 1 2 3 4 -1 -2 y = 2x + 1 -3 -4 Back to Main Page

The Table Method Use the table method to plot the following lines: 1) y = x + 3 2) y = 2x – 3 3) y = 2 – x 4) y = 3 – 2x x 1 2 y Click to reveal plotted lines Back to Main Page

Further Exercise Using the table method, plot the following graphs.
1) y = x + 2 2) y = x – 3 3) y = 2x + 4 4) y = 2x – 3 5) y = 3x + 1 6) y = 3x – 2 7) y = 1 – x 8) y = 1 – 2x 9) y = 2 – 3x 10) y = x + 1 2 2 Back to Main Page

The x = 0, y = 0 Method This method is used when x and y are on the same side. Example: x + 2y = 4 To draw a straight line we only need 2 points to join together. Back to Main Page

If we find the 2 points where the graph cuts the axes then we can plot the line.
These points are where x = 0 (anywhere along the y axis) and y = 0 (anywhere along the x axis). Back to Main Page

y x 8 7 6 5 This is where the graph cuts the x – axis (y=0) 4 3
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 This is where the graph cuts the x – axis (y=0) This is where the graph cuts the y – axis (x=0) Back to Main Page

By substituting these values into the equation we can find the other half of the co-ordinates.

Example Question: Draw the graph of 2x + y = 4 Solution x = 0
1st Co-ordinate = (0,4) y = 0 2x + 0 = 4 2x = 4 x = 2 2nd Co-ordinate = (2,0) Back to Main Page

y x So the graph will look like this. 2x + y = 4 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 2 3
