**Graphing Method # 2**

Using the Intercept Form

Using the Intercept Form

There are two intercept for any linear equation.

**=> where the line crosses the x axis.**

*x intercept***where the line crosses the y axis.**

*y intercept =>*** **

** **

** **

** **

**eg. graph the equation**

*** substitute 0 for x and then substitute 0 for y.**

**Using the intercept method.**

**Method # 3**

**Slope- Intercept Form**

Step :

1.) Equation must be put into y= mx + b form.

ex. graph x- 2y = 2 ( using the intercept form.)

m = 1/2 = slope

b = -1 y intercept

2.) Plot the y intercept.

3.) Use the slope rise/run to find the second point from "b".

- and when graphing it, from point "b" rise 1/2 then run 2 place.
