Graph an equation in slope-intercept form EXAMPLE 2 Graph y = – x – 1. 2 3 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is – 1, so plot the point (0, – 1) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2

4
Graph an equation in slope-intercept form EXAMPLE 2 STEP 3 Identify the slope. The slope is –, or, so plot a second point on the line by starting at (0, – 1) and then moving down 2 units and right 3 units. The second point is (3, – 3). – 2 3 2 3

GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is +2, so plot the point (0, +2) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2 Graph the equation 4. y = – x + 2

10
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 STEP 3 Identify the slope. The slope is –1 so plot a second point on the line by starting at (0, 2) and then moving down 1 unit and right 1 unit. The second point is (1, 1). Draw a line through the two points. STEP 4

11
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is +4, so plot the point (0, +4) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2 Graph the equation 5. y = x + 4 2 5

GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 STEP 3 Draw a line through the two points. STEP 4 Identify the slope. The slope is so plot a second point on the line by starting at (0, 4) and then moving up 2 unit and right 5 unit. The second point is (5, 6). 2 5

13
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is –3, so plot the point (0, –3) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2 Graph the equation 6. y = x – 3 1 2

14
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 STEP 3 Draw a line through the two points. STEP 4 Identify the slope. The slope is so plot a second point on the line by starting at (0, –3) and then moving up 1 unit and right 2 unit. The second point is (–2, 2). 1 2

15
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is +5, so plot the point (0, +5) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2 Graph the equation 7. y = 5 + x

16
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 STEP 3 Identify the slope. The slope is 1 so plot a second point on the line by starting at (0, 5) and then moving up 1 unit and right 1 unit. The second point is (1, 6). Draw a line through the two points. STEP 4

17
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 SOLUTION The equation is already in slope-intercept form. STEP 1 Identify the y -intercept. The y- intercept is +1, so plot the point (0, +1) where the line crosses the y- axis. STEP 2 Graph the equation 8. f (x) = 1 – 3x

18
GUIDED PRACTICE for Examples 1 and 2 STEP 3 Identify the slope. The slope is –3 so plot a second point on the line by starting at (0, 1) and then moving down 3 unit and right 1 unit. The second point is (1, 2). Draw a line through the two points. STEP 4

19
