After ou have done our current assignment, go back a section or two and tr a few problems. You will be amazed at how much our knowledge will improve with a regular review.. EQUATIONS OF LINES IN SLOPE- INTERCEPT AND STANDARD FORM In Section. ou learned that the graph of all solutions to a linear equation in two variables is a straight line. In this section we start with a line or a description of a line and write an equation for the line. The equation of a line in an form is called a linear equation in two variables. Slope-Intercept Form Consider the line through (0, ) with slope shown in Fig... If we use the points (, ) and (0, ) in the slope formula, we get an equation that is satisfied b ever point on the line: m Slope formula 0 Let (, ) (0, ) and (, ) (, ). Now solve the equation for : Multipl each side b. Add to each side. Because (0, ) is on the -ais, it is called the -intercept of the line. Note how the slope and the -coordinate of the -intercept (0, ) appear in. For this reason it is called the slope-intercept form of the equation of the line. Slope-Intercept Form The equation of the line with -intercept (0, b) and slope m is m b. E X A M P L E Using slope-intercept form Write the equation of each line in slope-intercept form. a) b) c) (, ) (0, ) (0, 0) (, ) (0, ) (, )

2 8 ( 6) Chapter Linear Equations in Two Variables and Their Graphs calculator close-up Since a graphing calculator screen has a finite number of piels, a graphing calculator plots onl a finite number of ordered pairs that satisf an equation. A graph is supposed to be a picture of all of the ordered pairs that satisf an equation. Because a calculator plots man ordered pairs accuratel and quickl, it can be a great help in drawing the graph of an equation. a) The -intercept is (0, ), and the slope is. Use the form m b with b andm. The equation in slope-intercept form is. b) The -intercept is (0, 0), and the slope is. So the equation is. c) The -intercept is (0, ), and the slope is. So the equation is. The equation of a line ma take man different forms. The easiest wa to find the slope and -intercept for a line is to rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form. E X A M P L E Finding slope and -intercept Determine the slope and -intercept of the line 6. Solve for to get slope-intercept form: 6 6 The slope is, and the -intercept is (0, ). helpful hint Standard Form The graph of the equation is a vertical line. Because slope is not defined for vertical lines, this line does not have an equation in slope-intercept form. Onl nonvertical lines have equations in slope-intercept form. However, there is a form that includes all lines. It is called standard form. In geometr we learn that two points determine a line. However, if ou locate two points that are close together and draw a line through them, our line can have a lot of error in it at locations far from the two chosen points. Locating five points on the graph will improve our accurac. If ou draw a straight line with two points, the should be chosen as far as possible from each other. Standard Form Ever line has an equation in the form A B C where A, B, and C are real numbers with A and B not both zero. To write the equation in this form, let A, B 0, and C. We get 0, which is equivalent to. In Eample we converted an equation in standard form to slope-intercept form. An linear equation in standard form with B 0 can be written in slope-intercept

3 . Equations of Lines in Slope-Intercept and Standard Form ( 7) 8 form b solving for. In the net eample we convert an equation in slope-intercept form to standard form. E X A M P L E Converting to standard form Write the equation of the line in standard form using onl integers. To get standard form, first subtract from each side: Multipl each side b to eliminate the fraction and get positive. The answer in Eample is not the onl answer using onl integers. Equations such as and 0 0 are equivalent equations in standard form. We prefer to write because the greatest common factor of,, and is and the coefficient of is positive. Using Slope-Intercept Form for Graphing One wa to graph a linear equation is to find several points that satisf the equation and then draw a straight line through them. We can also graph a linear equation b using the -intercept and the slope. Strateg for Graphing a Line Using Slope and -Intercept. Write the equation in slope-intercept form if necessar.. Plot the -intercept.. Starting from the -intercept, use the rise and run to locate a second point.. Draw a line through the two points. E X A M P L E To check Eample, graph ( ) on a graphing calculator as follows: calculator close-up The calculator graph is consistent with the graph in Fig... Graphing a line using -intercept and slope Graph the line. First write the equation in slope-intercept form: Subtract from each side. Divide each side b. The slope is, and the -intercept is (0, ). A slope of means a rise of and a run of. Start at (0, ) and go up two units and to the right three units to locate a second point on the line. Now draw a line through the two points. See Fig.. for the graph of. = Run = Rise = FIGURE.

4 8 ( 8) Chapter Linear Equations in Two Variables and Their Graphs CAUTION When using the slope to find a second point on the line, be sure to start at the -intercept, not at the origin. E X A M P L E Graphing a line using -intercept and slope Graph the line. The slope is, and the -intercept is (0, ). Because, we use a rise of and a run of. To locate a second point on the line, start at (0, ) and go down three units and to the right one unit. Draw a line through the two points. See Fig... (0, ) = + + FIGURE. Writing the Equation for a Line In Eample we wrote the equation of a line b finding its slope and -intercept from a graph. In the net eample we write the equation of a line from a description of the line. E X A M P L E 6 Writing an equation Write the equation in slope-intercept form for the line through (0, ) that is perpendicular to the line. First find the slope of : The slope of this line is. The slope of the line that we are interested in is the opposite of the reciprocal of. So the line has slope and-intercept (0, ). Its equation is. calculator close-up If ou use the same minimum and maimum window values for and, then the length of one unit on the -ais is larger than on the -ais because the screen is longer in the -direction. In this case, perpendicular lines will not look perpendicular. The viewing window chosen here for the lines in Eample 6 makes them look perpendicular. An viewing window proportional to this one will also produce approimatel the same unit length on each ais. Some 0 0 calculators have a square feature that automaticall makes the unit length the same on both aes.

5 Applications. Equations of Lines in Slope-Intercept and Standard Form ( 9) 8 The slope-intercept and standard forms are both important in applications. E X A M P L E 7 Changing forms A landscaper has a total of $800 to spend on bushes at $0 each and trees at $0 each. So if is the number of bushes and is the number of trees he can bu, then Write this equation in slope-intercept form. Find and interpret the -intercept and the slope. Write in slope-intercept form: The slope is and the intercept is (0, 6). So he can get 6 trees if he bus no bushes and he loses of a tree for each additional bush that he purchases. WARM-UPS True or false? Eplain our answer.. There is onl one line with -intercept (0, ) and slope.. The equation of the line through (, ) with slope is.. The vertical line has no -intercept..
