Unformatted text preview: Point Slope Form ) ( 1 1 x x m y y=Example 3: Write the equation of the line passing through the points (3, 2) and ( –9, 6). Then write the equation in slope intercept and standard form. How could we find the slope of the following line: 7 3 4 = + y x ? Example 4: Find the slope for each line: a) y = 4 b) x = 2 Let’s summarize what we know about the slopes of vertical and horizontal lines. A) Horizontal B) Vertical Slope: Slope: y = x = C) Parallel Lines D) Perpendicular lines Slope: Slope: 2 1 b b ≠ Example 5 : Write the equation of the line perpendicular to 2 4 3 + = x y and passing through the point (0, 4). Using Point slope form Using Slopeintercept form...
