Graphs of Linear Equations Worksheets
What does a Graph of a Linear Equation look like? Linear equations, as their name indicates, are equations representing straight lines on the graph. The equation of the straight line is constructed in such a way that no matter what value we put in place of its x and y-coordinates, the result will be the same and we will get a straight line plotted on the graph. The function of a straight line has a certain uniformity to it, and if we keep on increasing or decreasing the values of the coordinates, we get the same pattern, that is a straight line. The only difference that happens on the graph is that the line becomes longer or shorter. It often happens that if we keep on changing the values of the variables, the line remains straight, but it tilts to its either side, cutting both the axes. The points at which a line or a curve cuts both the axes are called intercepts.
Solving a Linear Equation?
1)Clear all parentheses, fractions and decimals. 2) Combine like terms. 3) Add the opposite to get the variable (and its coefficient) alone on one side. 4) Multiply both sides by the reciprocal of the coefficient of the variable.
