### Linear Functions

Review of Formulas

Formula for Slope

Standard Form

*where A>0 and A, B, C are integers

Slope-intercept Form

Point-Slope Form

Find the slope:

Use point-slope form:

x-intercepts and y-intercepts

The intercept is the point(s) where the graph crosses the axis.

To find an intercept, set the other variable equal to zero.

Horizontal Lines

• Slope is zero.
• Equation form is y = #.
• Write an equation of a line and graph it with zero slope and y-intercept of -2.
• y = -2
• Write an equation of a line and graph it that passes through (2, 4) and (-3, 4).
• y = 4

Vertical Lines

• Slope is undefined.
• Equation form is x = #.
• Write an equation of a line and graph it with undefined slope and passes through (1, 0).
• x = 1
• Write an equation of a line that passes through (3, 5) and (3, -2).
• x = 3

Graphing Lines

*You need at least 2 points to

graph a line.

Using x and y intercepts:

• Find the x and y intercepts
• Plot the points

Graph using x and y intercepts

2x – 3y = -12

x-intercept

2x = -12

x = -6

(-6, 0)

y-intercept

-3y = -12

y = 4

(0, 4)

Graph using x and y intercepts

6x + 9y = 18

x-intercept

6x = 18

x = 3

(3, 0)

y-intercept

9y = 18

y = 2

(0, 2)

Graphing Lines

Using slope-intercept form y = mx + b:

• Change the equation to y = mx + b.
• Plot the y-intercept.
• Use the numerator of the slope to count the
• corresponding number of spaces up/down.
• Use the denominator of the slope to count the corresponding number of spaces left/right.

Slope

m = -4 = -4

1

y-intercept

(0, 1)

Graph using slope-intercept form y = -4x + 1:

Slope

m = 3

4

y-intercept

(0, -2)

Graph using slope-intercept form

3x - 4y = 8

y = 3x - 2

4

Parallel Lines

• **Parallel lines have the same slopes.
• Find the slope of the original line.
• Use that slope to graph your new line and to write the equation of your new line.

Slope = 3

5

Write the equation of a line parallel to

2x – 4y = 8 and containing (-1, 4):

– 4y = - 2x + 8

y = 1x - 2

2

Slope = 1

2

y - 4 = 1(x + 1)

2

Perpendicular Lines

• **Perpendicular lines have the
• opposite reciprocal slopes.
• Find the slope of the original line.
• Change the sign and invert the
• numerator and denominator
• of the slope.
• Use that slope to graph your new
• line and to write the equation

Slope =-3

4

Perpendicular

Slope= 4

3

Write the equation of a line perpendicular to

y = -2x + 3and containing (3, 7):

Original Slope= -2

Perpendicular

Slope = 1

2

y - 7 = 1(x - 3)

2

Write the equation of a line perpendicular to

3x – 4y = 8 and containing (-1, 4):

-4y = -3x + 8

y - 4 = -4(x + 1)

3

Slope= 3

4

Perpendicular

Slope = -4
