Section 1.4 Linear Functions and Slope Scatter plot = set of points that represent data in a visual form Regressions Line = line that best fits the data points The slope of the line through the distinct points (x 1 , y 1 ) and (x 2 , y 2 ) is 1 2 1 2 x x y y run rise x in change y in change - - = = , where x 2 x 1 0. - Positive slope = graph is rising from left to right. - Negative slope = graph is falling from left to right - Horizontal Line: slope is zero - Vertical Line : slope is undefined EX 1: Find the slope of the line passing through each pair of points: a.) (-3, 4) and (-4, -2) b.) (4, -2) and (-1, 5) Point-Slope form of the equation of a line -can use the slope of the line and any point on the line to help us write the equation of that line. ) ( 1 1 x x m y y - = - , where (x 1 , y 1 ) is any point on the line and m = slope of the line EX 2: Write the point-slope form of the equation of the line passing through (2, -5) with slope of 6. Then solve the equation for y.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
