Draw the line on a sheet of graph paper with the given slope m that passes through the given point ( x ,y ). ii. Estimate the y-intercept of the line. iii. Use the point-slope form to determine the equation of the line. Place your answer in slope-intercept form by solv- ing for y . Compare the exact value of the y-intercept with the approxima- tion found in part (ii). 1. m = 2 / 3 and ( x ,y ) = ( − 1 , − 1) 2. m = − 2 / 3 and ( x ,y ) = (1 , − 1) 3. m = − 3 / 4 and ( x ,y ) = ( − 2 , 3) 4. m = 2 / 5 and ( x ,y ) = ( − 3 , − 2) 5.

Draw the graph of the given linear equation on graph paper and label it with its equation. ii. Determine the slope of the given equa- tion, then use this slope to draw a second line through the given point P that is parallel to the first line. iii. Estimate the y-intercept of the sec- ond line from your graph. iv. Use the point-slope form to determine the equation of the second line. Place this result in slope-intercept form y = mx + b , then state the exact value of the y-intercept. Label the second line with the slope-intercept form of its equation....
