5 (1 rating)

| 23 Questions

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

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

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

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

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

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

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 + 2 = 2(x + 1)

y + 1 = 2(x + 2)

y + 1 = 2(x - 2)
