Digital Lesson on Graphs of Equations

Copyright © by Houghton Mifflin Company, Inc. All rights reserved. 2 The graph of an equation in two variables x and y is the set of all points (x, y) whose coordinates satisfy the equation. For instance, the point (–1, 3) is on the graph of 2y – x = 7 because the equation is satisfied when –1 is substituted for x and 3 is substituted for y. That is, 2y – x = 7 Original Equation 2(3) – (–1) = 7 Substitute for x and y. 7 = 7 Equation is satisfied. Definition of Graph

Plot the points in the coordinate plane. 3.Connect the points using straight lines or smooth curves. Sketching Graphs

Find several solution points of the equation. xy = –2x + 3(x, y) –2y = –2(–2) + 3 = 7(–2, 7) –1y = –2(–1) + 3 = 5(–1, 5) 0y = –2(0) + 3 = 3(0, 3) 1y = –2(1) + 3 = 1(1, 1) 2y = –2(2) + 3 = –1(2, –1) Example: Sketch Graph (Linear Function)

A point at which the graph of an equation meets the y-axis is called a y-intercept. It is possible for a graph to have no intercepts, one intercept, or several intercepts. If (x, 0) satisfies an equation, then the point (x, 0) is called an x-intercept of the graph of the equation. If (0, y) satisfies an equation, then the point (0, y) is called a y-intercept of the graph of the equation. Definition of Intercepts

To find the y-intercepts of the graph of an equation algebraically, substitute 0 for x in the equation and solve for y. Procedure for finding the x- and y- intercepts of the graph of an equation algebraically: Finding Intercepts Algebraically

To find the x-intercepts, let y = 0 and solve for x. 0 = x 2 + 4x – 5 Substitute 0 for y. 0 = (x – 1)(x + 5) Factor. x – 1 = 0 x + 5 = 0 Set each factor equal to 0. x = 1 x = –5 Solve for x. So, the x-intercepts are (1, 0) and (–5, 0). To find the y-intercept, let x = 0 and solve for y. y = 0 2 + 4(0) – 5 = –5 So, the y-intercept is (0, –5). Example: Find Intercepts

The graph of an equation is symmetric with respect to the x-axis if replacing y with –y yields an equivalent equation. The graph of an equation is symmetric with respect to the origin if replacing x with –x and replacing y with –y yields an equivalent equation. The algebraic tests for symmetry are as follows:
