Equations of Lines
• A line is a set of points. Every line has an
equation that relates the coordinates of
these points.
ex:
2x - 3y = 14
(1, -4) (4, -2) (2.5, -3)
(-2, -6) (-0.5, -5) (7, 0)
Forms of a Line
• These are each different forms of the same
equation.

Point-Slope form
Standard Form
• This equation is of the form Ax + By = C.
The x and y terms are on the left side and
the constant is on the right side of the
equation.
2x - 3y = 14
Slope-Intercept Form
• This equation is of the form y = mx + b.
The y term is on the left and the x term is
on the right side of the equation. The
value of m is the slope of the equation.
The value of b is the y-intercept.

Point-Slope Form
• This equation is of the form
y – y1 = m(x – x1).
The y term is on the left and the x term is on the right
side of the equation. The value of m is the slope of the
equation. The values x1 and y1
are the coordinates of a
point on the line.

that contains the point (-1, 4).
Example #5
• Find the equation of a line that contains
the points (6, 3) and (-4, 5).
Example #6
• Find the equation of a horizontal line
through the point (-3, 1).
Example #7
• Find the equation of a vertical line through
the point (1, -2).
Example #8
• A truck ramp is being redesigned for a
local moving company. What is the
equation of the line that represents the
ramp?
Example #9
• The equation P = \$300m + \$2000 represents the
total payment (P) after m number of months for
purchasing a car from the local dealership.
