### Scribe post

Well thanks a lot Wendy I' didn't want to be scribe you will regret it in the future hahaha.

Today in class we talked about how to write the equation of a straight line.

There are two ways that this can be determined

1) slope intercept form

y=mx+b "m" is the slope and "b" is the y-intercept

2)Point-slope form

y-y1=m(x-x1)

We also learned that there are three different ways to show the equation

the slope-intercept form,the general form, and the standard form.

y=3/2=6--->y=mx+b

2)3x-2y=6 ---->ax+by=c this is the general form

3)3x-2y-6=0--->ax+by+c=0 this is standard form

______________________________________________________________________

After learning that we did a few review questions on slope-intercept form

1)m=2 b=6 -->y=2x+6 2)m=3 b=38-->y=3x+38 3)m=-17/5 b=163-->y=-17/5+163

______________________________________________________________________

After that we did a few examples using the point-slope form y-y1=m(x-x1)

ex.1 given A(3,-2) and m is -3/5

you substitute what you know into the equation

y-(-2)=-3/5(x-3)

then you multiple everything by 5 to get rid of the fraction

(5)(y+2)=(5)-3/5(x-3)

=5y+10=-3(x-3)

=5y+10=-3+9

=5y=-3x+9-->3x+5y=-1-->ax+by=c general form or 3x+5y+1=0 standard

then divide everything by 5 to get y by itself

=5y/5=-3/5-1/5

=y=-3/5-1/5 this is the slope-intercept form

____________________________________________________________________

In the second example we had solve the equation by using the x-intercept and we had to find the three ways to write the equation of a line

x-intercept=3 m=2

(3,0)

y-y1=m(x-x1)

y-0=2(x-3)

y=2x-6 -->y=mx=b

-2x+y=-6-->ax+by=c

-2x+y+6=0-->ax+by+c=o

____________________________________________________________________

ex.3

In the last one we were allowed to put it into any form that we wanted I chose the general form

p(-3,7) m=-7/2

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

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

2y-14=-7(x+3)

2y-14=-7x-21

7x+2y=-7

we worked on ex.13 today and omitted 13,14,17

And tomorrow's scribe is SUPER buTT

good job natasha. i really thought you weren't going to do it. well im happy for you that you did it though because... it would of been a bummer if yyou didn't do it! =). im sorry for making you the scribe but you got to understand that you were basically one out of 15-20 people that actually know how to scribe and we would give a good example to our fellow class mates what we're suppost to do for scribeing. thank you very muchhh natasha. your good friend. me =)
