- 1. Linear Equation: an equation whose graph forms a line. 1143 =− yx 262 +−= xxy is linear. is not. In linear equations, all variables are taken to the first power. Linear means of a line. So a linear equation is the equation of a line. Why?
- 2. Suppose you were asked to graph the solution set of the linear equation, .3=+ yx You could start by creating a table of values. x y
- 3. Choose any number to use as x or y . . . 3=+ yx x y 0
- 4. 3=+ y . . . and substitute the number for the variable. 3 0x 3=y x y 0 Then calculate to find,
- 5. 3=+ y Continue, until you have 3 sets of x and y values. 3 3x x y 0 3 0
- 6. 3=+x Continue, until you have 3 sets of x and y values. 3 x y 0 3 0 y 6 3− 6
- 7. With your table completed for three sets of values, you are ready to graph the line. 3 x y 0 3 0 6 3− 3=+ yx
- 8. When x is 0, y is 3, so plot the point, (0, 3). 3 x y 0 3 0 6 3− 3=+ yx ( )3,0
- 9. And when x is 3, y is 0, so plot the point, (3, 0). 3 x y 0 3 0 6 3− 3=+ yx ( )0,3
- 10. And finally, when x is -3, y is 6, so plot the point, (-3, 6). 3 x y 0 3 0 6 3− 3=+ yx ( )6,3−
- 11. If the three points do not line up, you need to find your mistake. 3 x y 0 3 0 6 3− 3=+ yx If they do line up, you just need to connect the dots.
- 12. This is the graph of the linear equation, .3=+ yx
- 13. Create a table of values for each equation, and graph it on grid paper: 1. 2. 3. 5−=− yx 72 =+ yx 42 −= xy 4. 1 2 1 += xy
