Math 1300 Section 2.4 1 Equations of a Line: Forms of Lines: 1. The standard form of a linear equation is given by C By Ax = + where A and B cannot both be equal to zero. 2. The point-slope form of a linear equation is given by ) ( 1 1 x x m y y - = - where m is the slope and the line passes through the point ( x 1 , y 1 ). 3. The slope-intercept form of a linear equation is given by b mx y + = where m is the slope and b is the y -intercept. 1. Find an equation for the line with a slope of ½ and a y -intercept -2. 2. Find an equation for the line with a slope of 3 and a y -intercept 5. 3. Find an equation for the line that passes through the point (-3, 6) and has a slope ¾.
