Instructions

a. If needed, rewrite the following equations in slope-intercept form. *

b. Indicate the slope and the y-intercept for each of the equations.

c. Using graph paper and a straight edge, graph the equations.

1. y = 3x − 4

2. 2x + 3y = 6

3. y + 3 = 0

4. x − 6 = 9

*Hint: One of the equations is already in slope-intercept form and one of the equations cannot be written in this form.

Instructions

b. Indicate the slope and the y-intercept for each of the equations.

c. Using graph paper and a straight edge, graph the equations.

1. y = 3x − 4

This one is in slope intercept form. (y=mx+b)

Solve for x and y in the equation, then graph.

2. 2x + 3y = 6

Put this one in slope intercept form. y=mx+b

Then, or course solve for x and y and graph.

3. y + 3 = 0

Cannot be in slope intercept.

4. x − 6 = 9

Cannot be in slope intercept.

How do I put it in slope intercept form?

2. Subtract 2x from both sides and then divide both sides by 3.

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
