This week we learned 3 different ways to write equations of linear relations

General form


  • general form is usually considered useless because it does not give slope and X and Y are on the same side of the equation
  • you must change this into slope intercept to get information

Slope intercept


  • this gives slope and the y intercept

Slope point

M(x-x1) = y-y1

  • gives a point on the graph
