question

Chin was shown the graph of a line that contained point (1, 7). He wrote f(x) = 4x + 3 to correctly represent the line. Which of these equations could represent the same line?

answer

y - 7 = 4(x - 1)

question

Alejandra correctly wrote the equation y - 3 = 1/5 (x - 10) to represent a line that her teacher sketched. The teacher then changed the line so it had a slope of 2, but still went through the same point. Which equation should Alejandra write to represent the new line?

answer

y - 3 = 2(x - 10)

question

What is the equation of the graphed line in point-slope form?

question

Anya graphed the line (y - 2) = 3(x - 1) on the coordinate grid.

answer

The slope of her line is 3

question

Which equations and/or functions represent the graphed line? Check all that apply.

answer

f(x) = 0.5x + 2
f(x) = 1/2x + 2
y - 3 = 1/2(x - 2)
y - 1 = 0.5(x + 2)

question

What is the equation of the graphed line in point-slope form?

answer

y - 1 = 2/3 (x - 3)

question

Which steps should be used to graph the equation y - 4 = 1/3 (x + 2)?

answer

1. Plot the point (-2,4).
2. From that point, count left 3 units and down 1 unit and plot a second point.
3. Draw a line through the two points.

question

Talia wants to write the equation of the graphed line in point-slope form. These are the steps she plans to use:
Step 1: Choose a point on the line, such as (2, 5).
Step 2: Choose another point on the line, such as (1, 3).
Step 3: Count units to determine the slope ratio. The line runs 1 unit to the right and rises 2 units up, so the slope is 1/2
Step 4: Substitute those values into the point-slope form.
y - y1 = m(x - x1)
y - 3 = (x - 1)
Which of Talia's steps is incorrect?

answer

Step 3 is incorrect because it shows an incorrect ratio for the slope.

question

What is the equation of the graphed line in point-slope form?

answer

y + 3 = 2 (x + 3)

question

The newspaper in Haventown had a circulation of 80,000 papers in the year 2000. In 2010, the circulation was 50,000. With x = 0 representing the year 2000, the graph below models this scenario.
