Unformatted text preview: Point-Slope Form of the Equation of a Line: y - y 1 = m(x - x 1 ) Given a point (x 1 ,y 1 ) and the slope m on a line. Slope-Intercept Form : y = mx + b ; m = slope and b = y-intercept Standard Form : Ax + By = C , where A, B , and C are real numbers and A and B are not both zero. (X1,Y1) (X2, Y2) rise = y2 - y1 run = x2 - x1 Ex. 1: Given a line containing the point (1, 3) and slope = -2/5, find the equation of the line in slope-intercept form, then graph the line. Ex. 2: Write the equation of the line containing the points (-2, 2) and (1, 4). Express your answer in point-slope form and standard form. Ex. 3: Write the equation of the line given the following properties. a) slope undefined through point (3, -5). b) horizontal line through point (-2, 4). Ex. 4: Find slope and y-intercept of 4x + 5y = -10, then graph the line....
