4.7 Graphing Lines Using 4.7 Graphing Lines Using Slope Intercept FormSlope Intercept Form

Goal: Graph lines in slope intercept form.

Slope-Intercept Form of the Linear Equation

y = mx + bm

= slope

b

= y-interceptAny linear equation which is solved for y

is in slope-intercept form.

Find the Find the slopeslope and and y-intercepty-intercept of the of the following linear equations:following linear equations:

y = 3x + 4m = 3 b = 4

y = -2x - 1m = -2 b = -1

y = x -9 4

m = b =9 4

-2 -1

y = 5x

m = 5 b = 0

Write a linear equation in the form y = mx + b given the following.

m = 2, b = -3

m = , b = 5

y = 2x - 32

y = -3x + 7

m = -3

y = mx + b

m = -3

Lines are parallel!

Same slope!
