1 Math 113 Review for Exam I Section 1.1 Cartesian Coordinate System, Slope, & Equation of a Line (1.) Rectangular or Cartesian Coordinate System You should be able to label the quadrants in the rectangular or Cartesian coordinate system. You should also be able to graph a given point. The origin is defined as the point (0,0). Sample Problems: Label the quadrants, x-axis, & y-axis in the graph shown below and plot the points (3,1) (-2,2) (-1,-1) (2,4) & (0,0). (2.) General Equation of a Line Ax + By = C x-intercept Is the point on a line that intercepts (crosses) the x-axis. To find the x- intercept let y = 0 and solve for x. y-intercept Is the point on a line that intercepts (crosses) the y-axis. To find the y- intercept let x=0 and solve for y. Example: Given the line 5x + 2y = 10 find the x-intercept and the y-intercept. x-intercept: 5x + 2 (0) = 10 5x = 10 x=2 x-intercept = (2,0) y-intercept: 5(0) + 2y = 10 2y = 10 y=5 y-intercept = (0,5) 1

2 Once you have defined two points on a line you can graph the line. Remember: The x-intercept and y-intercept are points on a line and all points should be defined by both their x and y values. Sample Problems: 2.1 Find the x-intercept and y-intercept for the following lines: a. 3x +5y = 30 b. 2x + 4y = 16 c. 7x + 2y = 14 d. 3x + 2y = 8 Now graph and label the line in 2.1.d using the 2 points you defined. 2.2 Complete the table of values for the given lines: 3x + 2y = 24 x y 0 3 2x y =8 x y 0 6 (3.) Slope of a Line The slope of a line is defined as the average rate of change of y with respect to x. Rise Δy y y Slope = m = = = Run Δ x x x

3 Example: Find the slope of a line that contains the points (4,2) and (6,8) y2 y Slope = m = = = = 3 x 2 x The slope in our example is positive, this means as y increases, x increases and as y decreases, x decreases. Specifically for this example for every +3 unit change in y there is a +1 unit change in x. For instance if the y value on this line went from 8 to 11 ( a 3 unit increase) then the x value would go from 6 to 7 (a 1 unit increase) OR if the y value decreased from 2 to 1 (a 3 unit decrease) then the x value would decrease from 4 to 3 (a 1 unit decrease). If the slope is negative this means as y increases, x decrease of as y decreases, x increases. You should know how to calculate the slope of a line given two points on the line. You should also know how to graph a line if you are given a point on the line and the slope of the line. You should also what direction a line with a positive slope slants and what direction a line with a negative slope slants. Vertical Line: A vertical line graphed in the rectangular coordinate system looks like this: X=2 In a vertical line, the x value stays constant. For the line above (x=2) no matter what the y-value is. The slope of a vertical line is undefined. For example: The slope of a vertical line containing the points (2,4) and (2,-1) is calculated as: 4 ( 1) 5 m = = Can t divide by zero, so slope is undefined The general equation for a vertical line is x = 2. x = a, the equation of the line above is 3

4 Horizontal Line: A horizontal line graphed in the rectangular coordinate system looks like this: Y=3 In a horizontal line, the y value stays constant. For the line above (y=3) no matter what the x-value is. The slope of a horizontal line is ZERO. For example: The slope of a horizontal line containing the points (2,3) & (-2,3) is calculated as: m = = = 0 2 ( 2) 4 The general equation for a horizontal line is y = 2. y = b, the equation of the line above is You should know how to define the equation of a vertical or horizontal line either (1) given that the line is horizontal or vertical and a point on the line or (2) given the slope of the line (undefined or 0) and a point on that line. Sample Problems: 3.1 Find the slope of the line containing the points (2,1) & (4,6). Use the slope of this line to find another point on the line and graph the line. LABEL YOUR POINTS. 3.2 Find the slope of the line containing the points (4,2) & (7,8). 4

5 3.3 Find the slope of the line containing the points (2,3) & (2,7). What type of line is this? What is the equation of this line? 3.4 Find the slope of the line containing the points (3,4) & (6,4). What type of line is this? What is the equation of this line? 3.5 What is the slope of a vertical line? 3.6 What is the slope of a horizontal line? 3.7 What is the equation of the line with a slope = 0 and containing the point (3,4)? 3.8 What is the equation of a vertical line containing the point (1,3)? (4.) Finding the Equation of a Line To find the equation of a line given the slope of the line and a point on the line you should use the following equation: The Point-Slope Equation: y y = m( x x ) 1 1 where: m = slope and (x 1,y 1 ) is the given point. For example: Find the equation of a line with a slope = 3 and containing the point (1,4) y y1 = m( x x1) y-4 = 3(x-1) y-4 = 3x-3 y=3x+1 Using the Point-Slope Equation and solving for y as shown in the example above gives you the equation of a line in the Slope-Intercept Form. y = mx + b 5

6 where: m = slope b= y value of the y-intercept (y-intercept = (0,b) If you are given two points on the line, then you first need to find the slope of the line and then use the Point-Slope Equation and ONE of the given points to find the equation of the line. Sample Problems: Find the equation of the lines in Slope-Intercept Form: 4.1 With a slope = 2 and the point (2,3) 4.2 With a slope = 3/2 and the point (4,6) 4.3 Containing the points (2,4) & (4,2) 4.4 Containing the points (-2, -1) and (2, -6) Find the equation of the lines in General Equation Form: 4.5 With a slope = -4 and containing the point (2,-3) 4.6 With a slope = 3 4 and containing the point (-6,2) 4.7 Containing the points (1,3) & (-2,-4) 4.8 Containing the points (3,2) & (3,0) 6

7 (5.) Word Problems The word problems in section 1.1 are asking you to find the equation of a line given two points on that line or one point on that line and the slope. The key to solving the word problems is being able to pull out the required information. A specific type of word problem asks you to find the equation that linearly relates cost and number of things produced. You should remember that cost equations have a fixed cost and a variable cost. The variable cost changes and depends on the number of things you produce. Cost = Variable Cost + Fixed Cost OR using the Slope-Intercept Form y (cost) = mx (variable cost) + b (fixed cost) Example: The cost of producing ipods can be linearly related to the number of ipods produced. If 100 ipods are produced the cost is 102,500 and if 2000 ipods are produce the cost is \$150,00. Find the equation for the cost of producing ipods. Let y = cost producing ipods and x=the number of ipods produced. You are given two order pairs in the problem: (100,102500) and (2000, ) use these ordered pairs to find the equation. First find the slope, then use the slope and one pointing the Point-Slope Equation to find the equation of the line: y y m x x y y1 = m( x x1) y = 25( x 100) y = 25x 2500 y = 25x = = = = How much would it cost to produce 5000 ipods? (plug-in 5000 for x and solve for y) How many ipods can you produce with \$162,500? (plug-in for y and solve for x) Some problems in this section will tell you the fixed (\$amount) and variable costs(\$/per item), to get your cost equation pull these out and put in the y = mx +b format. 7

8 Sample Problems: 5.1) A doughnut shop has a fixed cost of \$124 per day and a variable cost of \$0.12 per doughnut. Find the total daily cost of producing x doughnuts (the total cost equation). How many doughnuts can be produced for a total daily cost of \$3986 How much is the total daily cost to make 450 doughnuts? 5.2) A plant can manufacture 100 golf clubs per day for a total daily cost of \$7,800 and 120 golf clubs per day for a total daily cost of \$8,400. Assuming that the daily cost and production are linearly related, find the total daily cost of producing x golf clubs. How much would it cost to produce 250 golf clubs per day? 5.3) A small company manufactures picnic tables. The daily fixed cost is \$1,200 and the variable cost is \$45 per table. Find the total daily cost of producing x picnic tables. How many picnic tables can be produced for a total daily cost of \$4,800? 8

9 To get more practice with word problems like these you should review problems on page 17. Section 1.2 Parallel Lines, Perpendicular Lines, Identical Lines, & Points of Intersection In section 1.2 you compare lines to determine if they are parallel, intersecting, or coincident (identical). When comparing two lines to determine if they are the same line, or if they are parallel or if they intersect you should first put the equation for the line in the Slope-Intercept form ( y = mx + b), and then compare their slopes (m) and y-intercepts (b). Parallel Lines: Do not have any points in common and have the same slope. (m 1 = m 2 ) Intersecting Lines: Have ONE point in common and do not have the same slope. A specific type of intersecting lines is Perpendicular Lines. Perpendicular lines have slopes that are negative reciprocals of each other. If L1(line 1) is perpendicular to L2 (line 2) then m 1 *m 2 = -1. Or if m 1 = 3, then m 2 = -1/3. Coincident or Identical Lines: Have an infinite (all) number of points in common. They have the same slope and same y-intercept. (i.e. m 1 = m 2 and b 1 = b 2 ). You should be able to determine if lines are parallel, intersecting, perpendicular, or identical. Example: Determine if the following lines are parallel, perpendicular,or identical: L1: 3x + 4y = 9 and L2: 3y-4x = 6 First put lines in slope-intercept form: 3x + 4y = 9 3y-4x =6 4y=-3x + 9 3y = 4x + 6 y = -3/4 x + 9/4 y = 4/3 x + 2 Since the slopes are negative reciprocals of each other these lines are perpendicular. Finding the Point of Intersection: When two lines intersect they have one point in common this is their point of intersection. To find the point of intersection you need to first put the equations of the lines in the slope-intercept form, then solve for x. This x value is the x value of your point of intersection. Plug this x value into one of the equations of the lines to find your y value. The point of intersection satisfies both equations. Example: Find the point of intersection for the following two lines: L1: 12x-3y = 15 and L2: y + 2x = 7. First put the line in slope-intercept form: 12x-3y = 15 y + 2x =7-3y = -12x +15 y = -2x +7 y = 4x -5 Now, set the equations equal to each other and solve for x: 9

10 4x 5 = -2x + 7 6x = 12 x = 2 Plug this x value into one equation and solve for y y = 4x 5 = 4(2) 5 = 3 Check to make sure that the point (2,3) satisfies both equations: y = 4x 5 y = -2x = 4(2) 5 3 = -2 (2) = = Point (2,3) satisfies both equations, so this is the point of intersection. You should also know how to find the equation of a line if you are told the line is either parallel or perpendicular to a given line and contains a given point. Example: Find the equation of a line that contains the point (6,2) and is perpendicular to the line 6x-4y=24. First find the slope of the given line by putting the equation of that line in Slope-Intercept form. 6x 4y = 24 4y = 6x + 24 y = 3 x 6 2 The slope of the given line is 2 3, the slope of a line perpendicular to this line would be 2. We now have the slope of our line and one point (6,2) and we can find the equation 3 of the line. y y1 = m( x x1) 2 y 2 = ( x 6) 3 2x y 2 = x y =

11 Sample Problems: Determine if the following lines are parallel, coincident, or if they intersect. If they intersect, then find the point of intersection. (1.1) 2y-4x = 8 y = 2x + 4 (1.2) y 3x = 6 3y = 15 x (1.3) 2y + 3x = 13 4x 2y = 8 (1.4) x + y = 5 3y 2x = 10 (1.5) 2y 4x = 6 y-3 = 2x (1.6) Find the equation of the line that is perpendicular to the line 2x + 6 and contains the point (2,6) (1.7) Find the equation of the line that is parallel to the line 3x + 5 and contains the point (1,2) 11

13 Sample Problems: 1. Yearly car insurance rates have risen in the last few years. Assume that the cost for insuring a car is linearly related to the year.
