### Chapter 7 Section 5

Graphing Linear Equations

What You’ll Learn

You’ll learn to graph linear equations by using the x- and y- intercepts or the slope and y intercept.

Example 1

Determine the x-intercept and y-intercept of the graph of each equation. Then graph the equation.

5y – x = 10

To find the x-intercept, let y = 0.

5(0) – x = 10

- x = 10

-1 -1

x = -10

(-10,0)

To find the y-intercept, let x = 0

5y – 0 = 10

5y = 10

5 5

y = 2

(0,2)

Example 1: Continued

- The x-intercept is -10, and the y-intercept is 2. This means that the graph intersects the x- axis at (-10, 0) and the y-axis at (0, 2).
- Graph these ordered pairs.
- Then draw the line that passes through these points.

Example 2

Determine the x-intercept and y-intercept of the graph of each equation. Then graph the equation.

2x – 4y = 8

To find the x-intercept, let y = 0.

2x – 4(0) = 8

2x = 8

2 2

x = 4

(4, 0)

To find the y-intercept, let x = 0

2(0) – 4y = 8

-4y = 8

-4 -4

y = -2

(0,-2)

Example 2: Continued

- The x-intercept is 4, and the y-intercept is -2. This means that the graph intersects the x- axis at (4, 0) and the y-axis at (0, -2).
- Graph these ordered pairs.
- Then draw the line that passes through these points.

How to Check Your Work

- Look at the graph.
- Choose some other point on the line and determine whether it is a solution of 2x – 4y = 8.
- Try (2, -1)

2x – 4y = 8

2(2) – 4(-1) = 8

4 + 4 = 8

8 = 8

Your Turn

Determine the x-intercept and y-intercept of the graph of each equation. Then graph the equation.

x + y = 2

Your Turn

Determine the x-intercept and y-intercept of the graph of each equation. Then graph the equation.

3x + y = 3

Your Turn

Determine the x-intercept and y-intercept of the graph of each equation. Then graph the equation.

4x – 5y = 20

Example 3

To mail letter in 2000, it cost $0.33 for the first ounce and $0.22 for each additional ounce. This can be represented by y = 0.33 + 0.22x. Determine the slope and y-intercept of the graph of the equation.

y = mx + b

y = 0.22x + 0.33

The slope is 0.22, and the y-intercept is 0.33. So the slope represents the cost per ounce after the first ounce, and the y-intercept represents the cost of the first ounce of mail.

Example 4

Determine the slope and y-intercept of the graph of 10 + 5y = 2x.

Write the equation in slope-intercept form to find the slope and y-intercept

10 + 5y = 2x

10 + 5y = 2x

-10 = -10

5y = 2x – 10

5 5

y = ⅖x – 2

The slope is ⅖, and the y-intercept is -2.

Example 5

Graph each equation by using the slope and y-intercept

y = ⅔x – 5

y = mx + b

y = ⅔x + (-5)

The slope is ⅔, and the y-intercept is -5.

Graph the point at (0, -5).

Then go up 2 units and right 3 units.

This will be the point at (3, -3).

Then draw the line through points at (0, -5) and (3, -3).

Example 5: Check

- The graph appears to go through the point at (6, -1) . Substitute (6, -1) into y = ⅔x + (-5).
y = ⅔x + (-5)

-1 = ⅔(6) + (-5)

-1 = 4 – 5

-1 = -1

Replace x with 6 and y with -1.

Example 6

Graph each equation by using the slope and y-intercept.

3x + 2y = 6

First, write the equation in slope intercept form.

3x + 2y = 6

-3x = -3x

2y = -3x + 6

2 2

y = -3⁄₂x + 3

The slope is -3⁄₂ and the y-intercept is 3.

Example 6: Continued

- Graph the point (0, 3).
- Then go up 3 units and left 2 units.
- This will be the point at (-2, 6).
- Then draw a line through (0, 3) and (-2, 6).
- You can check your answer by substituting the coordinates of another point that appears to lie on the line, such as (2, 0).

Something to Memorize

- The graph of a horizontal line has a slope of 0 and no x-intercept.
- The graph of a vertical line has an undefined slope and no y-intercept.

Example 7

Graph each equation.

y = 4

y = mx + b

y = 0x + 4

No matter what the value of x, y = 4.

So, all ordered pairs are of the form (x, 4).

Some examples are (0, 4) and (-3, 4).

Example 8

Graph each equation.

x = -2

Slope is undefined, y- intercept: none

No matter what the value of y, x = -2.

So, all ordered pairs are of the form (-2, y).

Some examples are (-2, -1) and (-2, 3).
