STRAIGHT LINES A straight line is a locus of a point that moves in a plane with constant slope. It may also be referred to simply as a line which contains at least two distinct points. LINES PARALLEL TO A COORDINATE AXIS If a straight line is parallel to the y-axis, its equation is x = k, where k is the directed distance of the line from the y-axis. Similarly, if a line is parallel to the x-axis, its equation is y = k, where k is the directed distance of the line from the x-axis.

DIFFERENT STANDARD FORMS OF THE EQUATION OF A STRAIGHT LINE A. POINT-SLOPE FORM : If the line passes through the point (x 1 , y 1 ), then the slope of the line is . Rewriting the equation we have which is the standard equation of the point-slope form.

SLOPE-INTERCEPT FORM : Consider a line not parallel to either axes of the coordinate axes. Let the slope of the line be m and intersecting the y-axis at point (0, b), then the slope of the line is .

16.
Since p is perpendicular to L , the slope of p is equal to the negative reciprocal of the slope L . Substituting in the slope-intercept form, y = mx + b , we obtain Simplifying, we have the normal form of the straight line

Reduction of the General Form to the Normal Form The slope of the line Ax+By+C=0 is . The slope of p which is perpendicular to the line is therefore . Thus, . From Trigonometry, we obtain the values and . If we divide through the general equation of the straight line by , we have Transposing the constant to the right, we obtain This is of the normal form . Comparing the two equations, we note that .
