*MOVING BEYOND SLOPE AND Y-INTERCEPT* You now know three different forms for a linear function rule. Forms for the equation of a line Standard form Ax + By = C Slope-intercept form y = mx + b Point-slope form y - y 1 = m(x - x 1 ) Standard form can be useful for quickly determining the values for the x - and y -intercept. ** Forms for the equation of a line Standard form Ax + By = C Slope-intercept form y = mx + b Point-slope form y - y 1 = m(x - x 1 ) Slope-intercept form gives you information about the rate of change of the function. It also tells you the point at which the line will cross the y-axis. You can use slope-intercept

    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.
