Equations and Relationships
- Let’s match graphs and equations.
10.1: Which One Doesn't Belong: Slopes and Intercepts
Which one doesn't belong?
C. \(y=\text -2.5x - 7.5\)
10.2: What’s the Same? What’s Different?
Here are the graphs of four linear equations.
- Which graphs have a slope of 3?
- Which graphs have a slope of \(\frac12\)?
- Which graphs have a \(y\)-intercept of -1?
- Which graphs have an \(x\)-intercept of -2?
- Graph A represents the equation \(2y - 6x = 12\). Which other equations could graph A represent?
- \(y - 3x = 6\)
- \(y = 3x + 6\)
- \(y = -3x + 6\)
- \(2y = -6x + 12\)
- \(4y - 12x = 12\)
- \(4y - 12x = 24\)
- Write three equations that graph B could represent.
10.3: Situations and Graphs
For each situation, find the slope and intercepts of the graph. Then, describe the meaning of the slope and intercepts. Determine if the values you come up with are reasonable answers for the situation.
