**Lesson 6-3 Standard Form of a Linear Equation**

2
**What is Standard Form? Ax + By = C**

It’s when your x’s and y’s are on the same side equal to a number. Your x must be positive! x goes first!

3
**Why do we have to know Standard Form?**

Standard Form is REALLY easy to graph is you use x- and y-intercepts. X-intercept is where the graph crosses the x-axis. Y-intercept is where the graph crosses the y-axis.

4
**What are the coordinates?**

When something crosses the x-axis, what is the coordinate? (x, 0) The y is always zero. When something crosses the y-axis, what is the coordinate? (0,y) The x is always zero.

5
**How to graph using Standard Form:**

Find the y-intercept. Find the x-intercept. Plug in zero for x. Ex. 2x + 3y = -2 2(0) + 3y = -2 0 + 3y = -2 3y = -2 y = -2/3 Plug in zero for y. Ex. 2x + 3y = -2 2x + 3(0) = -2 2x + 0 = -2 2x = -2 x = -1

6
**You try…Graph 3x + 4y = 8 X-int…plug in 0 for y Y-int…plug in 0 for x**

3x + 4(0) = 8 3x + 0 = 8 3x = 8 X = 8/3 or 3(0) + 4y = y = 8 4y = 8 Y = 2 Now graph it!

7
**You try…Graph -4x + 3y = 12 X-int. (y=0) Y-int. (x=0)**

-4x = 12 Divide by -4 X = -3 3y = 12 Divide by 3 Y = 4 Now graph it!

8
**Weird Graphs y = 4 x = -2 Where does it cross the y-axis?**

Where does it cross the x-axis?

10
**It’s easier than you think…**

If you think this is confusing and you’re more comfortable with y=mx+b, then change standard to y=mx+b! It’s easier than you think…

11
**Convert Into Slope-Intercept Form**

(divide both sides by 2 to get y alone) (now simplify all fractions)

12
***** Check Your Answer *****

-3y = -9x - 12 (divide both sides by -3 to get y alone) (now simplify all fractions) -3y = -9x - 12 y = 3x + 4 Slope = 3 Intercept = 4

13
***** medium *** 21x – 7y =14 -7y = -21x + 14 y = 3x – 2**

Convert to Slope-Intercept Form: 21x – 7y =14 (subtract both sides by 21x) (now divide both sides by -7) -7y = -21x + 14 (simplify all fractions) y = 3x – 2

14
**Now you should be able to:**

Define standard form Define x- and y-intercepts Know how to solve the standard form of a linear equation for the x- and y-intercepts Graph using x- and y-intercepts Change standard form to y=mx+b form then graph the linear equation from there
