  1. 1. Solving Linear Equations<br />By: Anna Carey, Ali LaBella, and Jen Putnam<br />
  2. 2. Linear Equations vs.Linear Functions<br />A linear equationis an equation that has no operations other than addition, subtraction, and multiplication of a variable by a constant.<br />
  3. 3. Examples of Linear Equations<br />Linear EquationsNot Linear Equations<br />7x − 3y = 14 8a + 3b2 = -12 <br />x = 11y=ghghjgfj<br />3s = -2t − 9x + xy= 2<br />y = ¼xy = 1/X<br />
  4. 4. Linear Equations cannot…<br /><ul><li>Be raised to a power other than 1
  5. 5. Cannot have two variables multiplied by each other</li></ul>Why?<br />
  6. 6. Ax + By = C<br /><ul><li>A must be greater than or equal to zero
  7. 7. A and B cannot be zero
  8. 8. Example: 5x + 7y = 12</li></ul>Standard Form<br />
  9. 9. y = mx + b <br /><ul><li>m is the slope of the line
  10. 10. b is the y-intercept
  11. 11. Example: y = ¾x + 6</li></ul>Slope-Intercept Form<br />
  12. 12. y − y1 = m(x − x1)<br /><ul><li>(x1 , y1) are the coordinates of a point on the line
  13. 13. m is the slope of the line
  14. 14. Example: y +1 =¼(x − 2)</li></ul>Point-Slope Form<br />
  15. 15. x/a+y/b = 1<br /><ul><li>a is the x-intercept
  16. 16. b is the y-intercept
  17. 17. Example: x/2 + y/5 = 1</li></ul>Intercept Form <br />
  18. 18. <ul><li>Slope is the ratio of the change in </li></ul> y-coordinates to the change in x-coordinates.<br /> (Rise over Run, Rate of Change)<br />y2− y1= m<br />x2− x1tghr<br />What is slope?<br />
  19. 19. <ul><li>The x-intercept is where the line crosses the </li></ul> x-axis.<br /><ul><li>Set y equal to zero
  20. 20. Example: 4x + 2y = 8</li></ul> 4x + 2(0) = 8<br /> 4x = 8<br /> x = 2<br /><ul><li>So, the x-intercept is (2, 0)</li></ul>Finding the x-intercept <br />
  21. 21. <ul><li>The y-intercept is where the line crosses the </li></ul>y-axis.<br /><ul><li>Set x equal to zero
  22. 22. Example: 4x + 2y = 8</li></ul>4(0) + 2y= 8<br />2y = 8<br />y = 4<br /><ul><li>So, the y-intercept is (0, 4)</li></ul>Finding the y-intercept<br />
  23. 23. Solve: 3x − 4 = -10<br />Isolate the variable, x<br /><ul><li>3x − 4 (+ 4) = -10 (+ 4)
  24. 24. 3x = -6
  25. 25. x = -2</li></ul>The solution to this linear equation is x = -2<br />Solving a Linear Equation<br />
