C. y = 4x

D. y = 4

Write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line whose slope is 4 and whose y-intercept is 3.

Write an Equation From a Graph

Write an equation in slope-intercept form of the line shown in the graph.

Step 1 You know the coordinates of two points on the line. Find the slope. Let (x1, y1) = (0, –3) and (x2, y2) = (2, 1).

(x1, y1) = (0, –3)

(x2, y2) = (2, 1)

Write an Equation From a Graph

Simplify.

Answer: The equation of the lines is y = 2x – 3.

The slope is 2.

Step 2 The line crosses the y-axis at (0, –3).So, the y-intercept is –3.

Step 3 Finally, write the equation.

Slope-intercept form

Graph Equations

A. Graph y = 0.5x – 7.

Step 1 The y-intercept is –7. So graph (0, –7).

From (0, –7), move up 1 unit and right 2 units. Draw a dot.

Step 3 Draw a line through the points.

Step 2 The slope is 0.5

Graph Equations

B. Graph 5x + 4y = 8.

Step 1 Solve for y to write the equation in slope-intercept form.

8 – 5x = 8 + (–5x) or –5x + 8

Subtract 5x from each side.

Simplify.

Original equation

Divide each side by 4.

5x + 4y = 8

5x + 4y – 5x = 8 – 5x

4y = 8 – 5x

4y = –5x + 8

Graph Equations

Divide each term in the numerator by 4.

Step 2 The y-intercept of

So graph (0, 2).

Graph Equations

From (0, 2), move down 5 units and right 4 units. Draw a dot.

Step 3 The slope is

Step 4 Draw a line connecting the points.

Answer:

A. HEALTH The ideal maximum heart rate for a 25-year-old who is exercising to burn fat is 117 beats per minute. For every 5 years older than 25, that ideal rate drops 3 beats per minute. Write a linear equation to find the ideal maximum heart rate for anyone over 25 who is exercising to burn fat.

Variables

Equation

Let R = the ideal heart rate.

Let a = years older than 25.

ideal rateIdeal rate of years older for 25- rate equals change times than 25 plus year-old.

R = × a + 117

B. Graph the equation.

Answer:

Write an Equation in Slope-Intercept Form

The graph passes through (0, 117) with a slope of

C. Find the ideal maximum heart rate for a person exercising to burn fat who is 55 years old.

Answer: The ideal heart rate for a 55-year-old person is 99 beats per minute.

Write an Equation in Slope-Intercept Form

The age 55 is 30 years older than 25. So, a = 30.

Ideal heart rate equation

Replace a with 30.
