4. Vocabulary Linear Equation: an equation whose graph forms a straight line. y-Intercept: the y-coordinate of the point where a line crosses the y-axis (vertical axis). Slope-Intercept Form: a linear equation of a non-vertical line written as y = mx + b, where m is the slope and b is the y-intercept.

5. Example 1: Identifying Slope and y-intercept Use the Slope-Intercept form. mx + b y = y = 2x – 3 What are the slope and y-intercept of y = 2x – 3? The slope is 2; the y-intercept is –3.

6. Example 2: Writing an Equation in Slope-Intercept Form 2 5 Use the slope-intercept form. Substitute for m and4 for b. y = mx + b 2 5 2 5 y = x + 4 Write an equation of the line with slope and y-intercept 4.

7. Example 3: Writing an Equation From a Graph Write an equation for the line. Step 1 Find the slope. Two points on the line are (0, 1) and (3, –1). –1 – 1 3– 0 slope = 2 3 = – y = mx + b Step 2 Write an equation in slope– intercept form. The y-intercept is 1. 2 3 y = – x + 1 Substitute – for mand 1 for b. 2 3

8. Example 4: Writing an Equation From Two Points What equation in slope-intercept form represents the line that passes through the points (0, 3) and (5, 2)? Step 1Use the two points to calculate the slope of the line. m = = = y1 – y23 – 21 x1 – x20 – 5 -5 Step 2Use the slope and the coordinates of one of the points to find b. y= mx + b 3 = (-0.2)(0) + b 3 = 0 + b 3 = b Step 3Substitute the slope and y-intercept into the slope-intercept form. y= mx + b y = -0.2x + 3 y = -0.2x + 3

9. Example 5: Graphing a Linear Equation Step 2 The slope is . Use slope to plot a second point. Step 3 Draw a line through the two points. Step 1 The y-intercept is –2. So plot a point at (0,–2). 1 3 1 3 Graph y = x – 2.
