## 8-3 & 8-4: Graphing Linear Functions

Mr. Gallo

### Graphing Linear Functions

• Linear Function:

• The graph of this function is a____________ _______.

• Graphs of the form y = mx

line

straight

### Graphing Linear Functions

• Example 1: Given the point A (3, 6), find the equation of the line that passes through A and the origin.

3

What is the slope of the line?

______________________What could you multiply by 3 to get 6?

_______________________The equation of the line is:

y= x

6

### Graphing Linear Functions

• Example 2-Given the point B (9, 3), find the equation of the line that passes through B and the origin.

What is the slope of the line?

______________________

What could you multiply by 9 to get 3?

______________________

The equation of the line is:

y = x

9
