Unformatted text preview: 3.3 Graphing Linear Functions By the vertical line test, we know that all linear equations are functions (except those whose graphs are vertical lines). The equation y = 2x + 3 can be written as f(x) : 2x + 3 Any linear equation (except vertical lines) can be written using function notation: Solve equation for y Replace y with f(x) Example: Write the equation 2x + 3y : 6 using function notation. ~Zx ~?_x : ~21 +03 IE} “'23” "a? \l : “2% X + 1 Another way to graph a linear equation or function is to find and plot the x— and y— intercepts. To find an x—intercept, let y = O or f(x) = O and solve for x. To find a y—intercept, let x = O and solve for y. Example: Graph 2x + 3y = 6 by plotting intercepts. ‘ X’Jmlii Y~lh+1 I \ 2x4’5(03”U’ .23:U I’?’ ..- Z. x13 farti- When a linear funcTion is wri’rien in The form y = mx + b or f(x) = mx + b, The y—in’rercepT is (O, b)!
