# 2.3 Equations of Lines 2.3 Equations of Lines Going the other direction from a picture to the equation There are 3 standard forms of equations 1. Slope intercept form y y = mx + b slope intercept 2. Standard form Ax + By = C

A, B and C are integers and A is positive 3. Point slope form y y1 m(x x1 ) So, what do you need to have to find the equation of the line? Slope and Lets try one: a point

Slope=2 and the y-int = 5 y 2x 5 Find the equation of the line that has points of (0,3) and (4,0) y 3x 10 Slope = 3, x intercept = 10 y 3x 30 Slope = 3, passes through (10, 10) y 3x 20 6.Parallel to -4x + 2y = 10 and

passes through (-1, -1) m 2 1 2( 1) b y 2x 1 7. Parallel to x + 2y = 1 and passes through the point of intersection of the lines y = 3x Solve 2 and y =of 2x + 1. systems m 1/ 2
