EQUATIONS AND GRAPHS OF LINES IN THE XYPLANE You can define any line in the standard xy-coordinate plane by the equation y = mx + b. In this equation, m is the slope of the line, b is the line’s y-intercept (where the line crosses the y axis), and x and y are the coordinates of any point on the line. (Any (x,y) pair defining a point on the line can substitute for the variables x and y.) You can determine the slope of a line from any two pairs of (x,y) coordinates. In general, if (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) lie on the same line, calculate the line’s slope as follows (notice that you can subtract either pair from the other): slope (m) = y2 − y1 y −y or 1 2 x 2 − x1 x1 − x 2 Be careful to subtract corresponding values. For example, a careless test-taker calculating the slope might subtract y1 from y2 but...
