Please write your final answers on this sheet in the answer block provided and circle your final answers on your scratch work copy. Scratch work should be appropriately spaced apart and numbered. • In the following exercises you will be given a line passing through the origin, g , in a Cartesian Plane. The axes do not have any tick marks on them. Two points G ¡ and G ¢ will be located on this line. Your job is to… 1) Draw vertical lines through the two points and the xaxis. 2) Identify the vertical distance between the points and the xaxis in Inches , then 3) Identify the horizontal distance between the points and the yaxis in Inches and 4) Label the two points with coordinates in Inches Finally, 5) Calculate the slope of the line from g to G ¡ , from g to G ¢ , and from G ¡ to G ¢ . 6) Mark a tick mark 1 inch from Origin on the xaxis. 7) Draw a vertical line from this tick mark to the line. 8) What is the length of this vertical line? [What should it be?] • Example: G ¡ :£1.25 inch , 1.25 inch ¤ G ¢ : (2 inch , 2 inch ) To get xcoordinates, measure from O to the Gray Lines you drew. To get ycoordinates, Measure the gray lines from the xaxis to the Points. Slope from g to G ¡ : 1.25 − 0 1.25 − 0 = 1.25 1.25 = 1 Slope from g to G ¢ : 2 − 0 2 − 0 = 2 2 = 1 Slope from G ¡ to G ¢ : 2 − 1.25 2 − 1.25 =. 75 . 75 = 1 Length of Third Vertical Line: 1 inch (It should be this since slope of 1 is the fraction ¡ ¡ so a 1 inch run to the right should produce a 1 inch rise up.
