- Slope-intercept form of general form of linear equation.
- Equation of a line from a graph.
- Equation of a parallel line.
- Equation of a perpendicular line.
- Equation to relate real-world problems
- Graph of a line with equation in standard form.

### Equations of Lines

#### 1. Intercepts of a line

The point where the graph crosses the x− axis is called the 𝒙** intercept** of the graph.

The point where the graph crosses the y− axis is called the 𝒚** intercept **of the graph.

#### 2. Slope-intercept form of a linear equation of a line

Linear equations may be written in different forms. The general form of a linear equation in slope-intercept form is y = **mx+b** where m is the slope of the line and b is the y-intercept of the line.

#### 3. Write an equation of a parallel line

To write the equation of a line parallel to a given line and passing through a point:

**Step 1: **Find the slope of the given line.

Slope of parallel lines is equal.

**Step 2: **Find the y− intercept by substituting the slope and given point in slope-intercept form.

#### 4. Write an equation of a perpendicular line

To write the equation of a line perpendicular to a given line and passing through a point:

**Step 1: **Find the slope of the given line.

Find the slope of the required line.

Since the product of slopes perpendicular lines is −1

**Step 2: **Find the y− intercept by substituting the slope and given point in slope-intercept form.

#### 5. Write an equation in standard form

The equation of a line is written in standard form as Ax + By = C where A and B are not equal to zero.

#### 6. Write an equation to relate real-world problems

We can write linear equations to model real-world situations, such as

- To compare costs.
- To solve age-related problems.
- To solve work, time, and wages problems.
- To calculate the speed, distance, and time of a moving object.
