UNIT 2 LESSON 4 - DEVELOPING POINT SLOPE FORM

WRITING THE LINEAR FUNCTION

WRITING THE LINEAR FUNCTION

What is the slope of the line?

What is the y-intercept?

Check all that apply
Because we do not have an integer as the y-intercept all of the time, we need to know how to get the equation for a line a different way. So how do we write equations for these graphs?

USING POINT SLOPE FORM PRACTICE

USING POINT SLOPE FORM PRACTICE

What is the slope of the line in the graph?

What would the equation be in point-slope form if you were using the point (-7,0)

Solving for y to get the equation in slope-intercept form would be...

What would the equation be in point-slope form if you were using the point (9,-4)

Solving for y to get the equation in slope-intercept form would be...

Does it matter which point you use to write your equation in point-slope form? Explain why or why not.
