Graph a line using slope-intercept form.**You have seen that you can graph a line if you know two**points on the line. Another way is to use the slope of the line and the point that contains the y-intercept.**; y intercept = 4**Slope =- Step 2 Slope = Count 2 units down and 5 units right from (0, 4) and plot another point. Additional Example 1: Graphing by Using Slope and y-intercept Graph the line given the slope and y-intercept. y • Rise = –2 • • Step 1 The y-intercept is 4, so the line contains (0, 4). Plot (0, 4). • Run = 5 Step 3 Draw the line through the two points.**Step 2 Slope =**Count 2 units up and 1 unit right from (0, –3) and plot another point. Check It Out! Example 1a Graph the line given the slope and y-intercept. slope = 2, y-intercept = –3 Step 1 The y-intercept is –3, so the line contains (0, –3). Plot (0, –3). Run = 1 • Rise = 2 • Step 3 Draw the line through the two points.**Step 2 Slope = Count 2 units down and 3**units right from (0, 1) and plot another point. Run = 3 Check It Out! Example 1b Graph each line given the slope and y-intercept. slope = , y-intercept = 1 Step 1 The y-intercept is 1, so the line contains (0, 1). Plot (0, 1). Rise = –2 • • Step 3 Draw the line through the two points.**If you know the slope of a line and the y-intercept, you can**write an equation that describes the line. Step 1 If a line has a slope of 2 and the y-intercept is 3, then m = 2 and (0, 3) is on the line. Substitute these values into the slope formula.**•**• 2x = y –3 +3 +3 Step 2 Solve for y: Simplify the denominator. Multiply both sides by x. Add 3 to both sides. 2x + 3 = y, or y = 2x + 3**Any linear equation can be written in slope-intercept form**by solving for y and simplifying. In this form, you can immediately see the slope and y-intercept. Also, you can quickly graph a line when the equation is written in slope-intercept form.**slope = ; y-intercept = 4**y = x + 4 Additional Example 2A: Writing Linear Equations in Slope-Intercept Form Write the equation that describes the line in slope-intercept form. y = mx + b Substitute the given values for m and b.
