# Linear Functions and Y - Intercepts

Slide points A and B to model the linear equation. The equation of the line you created is located on the left side of the screen under Dependent Objects.
Question 1: Model the linear equation y = – x and sketch your graph in the space below. How did you model the new equation and what makes it different from the original? What is the Y-Intercept? Question 2: Model the linear equation y = – x + 2 and sketch your graph in the space below. How did you model the new equation and how is different from the original? Is it possible to have two linear equations with the same slope but different Y – Intercepts? Question 3: Model the linear equation y = 2 and sketch your graph on the work sheet. What is the Y – Intercept of your graph? How would you describe the linear function? Question 4: Model the linear equation y = 2x – 2 and sketch your graph in the space below. What is the Y – Intercept of your graph? Question 5: Model x = 2. What is the Y – Intercept? What is the slope of x = 2? What makes this problem different than problems 1 through 4?
