| 24 QuestionsNote from the author:

A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.

Solve It! The red line shows the altitude of a hot-air balloon during its linear descent. What is an equation of the line in slope-intercept form? Hint: What is the altitude of the balloon when it starts its descent at x = 0?

y = 2x + 650

y = -10x + 640

y = -2x + 650

Problem 2 Got It? What is the graph of the equation?

Be sure to include relevant graph detail: label axes, indicate units on both axes, and use arrows to represent end behavior, as appropriate.

Problem 3 Got It? In the last step of Problem 3, use the point (-2, -3) instead of (1, 4) to write an equation of the line.

y - 4 = (7/3)(x - 2)

y + 3 = (7/3)(x + 2)

y - 3 = (7/3)(x - 2)

y - 4 = (7/3)(x + 2)

What are the slope and one point on the graph of the equation below?

slope: 4/9; point: (7, 12)

slope: 4/9; point: (-7, 12)

slope: 4/9; point: (-12, 7)

slope: 4/9; point: (12, 7)

What is an equation of the line that passes through the point (3, -8) and has slope -2?

y + 8 = -2(x + 3)

y - 8 = -2(x + 3)

y + 8 = -2(x - 3)

y - 8 = -2(x - 3)

What is an equation of the line that passes through the points (-1, -2) and (2, 4)?

y + 2 = 2(x - 1)

y + 1 = 2(x - 2)

y + 1 = 2(x + 2)

y + 2 = 2(x + 1)

Review Lesson 5-3: Match the slopes m and y-intercepts b with their equations.

- m = 1
- m = -1
- m = 6
- b = 0
- b = 4
- b = -13

- y = x + 4
- y = 6x
- y = -x - 13

Review Lesson 2-5: Solve the equation for y.

y = 7xz

y = z/7x

y = 7z/x

Review Lesson 2-5: Solve the equation for y.

y = (7b - 3) / a

y = (3b + 7) / a

y = (7b + 3) / a

Review Lesson 2-5: Solve the equation for y.

y = c/6 - x

y = 6c - x

y = -c/6 + x

Vocabulary Review: Classify each equation based on its y-intercept.

- y = 3x + 4
- y = 4x - 3
- y = 5x + 3
- y = -3x + 2

- Has a y-intercept of 3
- Has a y-intercept other than 3

Vocabulary Review: Categorize each equation based on whether or not it is in slope-intercept form.

- 2x - y = 10
- x + 3y + 11 = 0
- y - 4 = 2(x + 7)
- y = 2x + 6

- Slope-intercept form
- NOT Slope-intercept form

21

Vocabulary Review: Classify each statement based on whether or not it is true about the y-intercept of any graph.

- occurs where y = 0 on the graph
- occurs where x = 0 on the graph
- occurs where the graph touches the x-axis

- True of the y-intercept of any graph
- NOT true of the y-intercept (of at least some graphs)
