TOPIC:  Linear Equations.

WHAT CLASS?

Algebra I. However, their use goes all the way into Calculus and beyond.

 

Here are some things to consider whether you are looking at an equation or a graph of a linear equation. Remember, the exponent/power of both x & y are to the first power. In Texan we would say,”

 

The x and the y both have powers of one!”

Visual information for your textbook and homework!

Here is a chart or guidline for finding the equation of a line when you are given certain information. The black boxes are where you start or as we math geeks/nerds may say, “the given(s).”

I hope you found this somewhat helpful. This is a topic which won’t go away. You’ll need linear equations if you intend to finish highschool, go to college, or take a standardized math test. ( ACT , SAT, GRE , GED , EOC , etc.)

Thanks to my student Chris who inspired me to write these notes out for him. He has certainly come a long way!
