A. Using SlopeIntercept Form
 SlopeIntercept form is y = mx + b
 "m" represents the slope.
 "b" represents the yintercept.
 Steps for graphing using y = mx + b
 Solve the equation for y.
 Determine the slope and yintercept.
 Graph the yintercept.
 Use the movements from slope (or rise/run) to graph more points from the yintercept.
 Connect the points with a straight line and arrows on each end.
 Label the line with its equation.


B. Using x and y Intercepts to Graph.

xintercept  the point where the line crosses the xaxis.

yintercept  the point where the line crosses the yaxis.
 Find the xintercept.
 Substitute zero in place of y in the equation.
 Solve the equation for x.
 You get the ordered pair (x, 0).
 Find the yintercept.
 Substitute zero in place of x in the equation.
 Solve the equation for y.
 You get the ordered pair (0, y).
 Graph the two intercepts or points.
 Connect the points with a straight line and arrows on each end.
 Label the line with its equation.
