1. What is a Linear Equation?
A linear equation is a pattern of numbers with proportional increase or decrease that is used to represent a line graph. Learn how to plot a graph and build and solve a linear equation.
2. Applying the Distributive Property to Linear Equations
In mathematics, the distributive property shows that the same answer will result whether one number is multiplied by each integer in a group of numbers or by the sum of the group of numbers. Learn about applying the distributive property to linear equations and work examples to practice the steps, including the final steps needed to solve the equations.
3. Linear Equations: Intercepts, Standard Form and Graphing
To solve a linear equation, begin by determining whether it is written in the standard form or the slope-intercept form. Explore the differences between the slope-intercept form and the standard form of a linear equation, and learn how to graph the point of intercept for each.
4. Abstract Algebraic Examples and Going from a Graph to a Rule
Abstract algebraic concepts are often difficult to understand because they do not include many numbers but are mostly variables and letters. Learn more about abstract algebraic concepts, finding the equation on a graph, identifying graphs by appearance, and finding the greatest slope on a graph.
5. Graphing Undefined Slope, Zero Slope and More
When the variable determining the slope is mathematically impossible but can still be graphed, it is referred to as an undefined slope. Learn how to compute formulas to graphs that have either undefined slope or zero slopes, and discover what this means for the line.
6. Graphs of Parallel and Perpendicular Lines in Linear Equations
Linear equations, which are graphed as straight lines, can have associated parallel lines which never touch, and perpendicular lines that intersect at 90 degrees. Learn the equations and see the graphs of these two types of linear equations.
7. How to Write a Linear Equation
Rather than drawing a graph from an equation, graphs can be used to determine equations using common algebraic techniques. Learn how to write a linear equation using two points and the slope formula as well as using background information on parallel and perpendicular lines.
8. Equation of a Line Using Point-Slope Formula
The point-slope formula is composed of a specific point of coordinates and a slope indicating a type of change over a given variable, such as distance over time. Identify the use of point-slope formula in graphing a line through provided examples.
