Exercises 1 – 11
THEOREM: The graph of a linear equation y = mx + b is a non – vertical line with slope m and passing through (0, b), where b is a constant.

Exercise 1.
Prove the theorem by completing parts (a)â€“(c). Given two distinct points, P and Q, on the graph of y = mx + b, and let l be the line passing through P and Q. You must show the following:
(1) Any point on the graph of y = mx + b is on line l, and
(2) Any point on the line l is on the graph of y = mx + b.
a. Proof of (1): Let R be any point on the graph of y = mx + b. Show that R is on l. Begin by assuming it is not. Assume the graph looks like the diagram below where R is on l’.

What is the slope of line l?
Since the points P and Q are on the graph of y = mx + b, then we know that the slope of the line passing through those points must have slope m. Therefore, line l has slope m.

What is the slope of line l’?
We know that point R is on the graph of y = mx + b. Then the coordinates of point R are (r1, mr1 + b) because R is a solution to y = mx + b, and r2 = mr1 + b. Similarly, the coordinates of P are (p1, mp1 + b).

What can you conclude about lines l and l’? Explain.
Lines l and l’are the same line. Both lines go through point P and have slope m. There can be only one line with a given slope going through a given point; therefore, line l is the same as l’.

b. Proof of (2): Let S be any point on line l, as shown.

Show that S is a solution to y = mx + b. Hint: Use the point (0, b).
Point S is on line l. Let S = (s1, s2).
slope of l = $$\frac{s_{2} – b}{s_{1} – 0}$$
We know the slope of l is m.
m = $$\frac{s_{2} – b}{s_{1} – 0}$$
m(s1 – 0) = s2 – b
ms1 = s2 – b
ms1 + b = s2 – b + b
ms1 + b = s2
s2 = ms1 + b,
which shows S is a solution to y = mx + b.

c. Now that you have shown that any point on the graph of y = mx + b is on line l in part (a), and any point on line l is on the graph of y = mx + b in part (b), what can you conclude about the graphs of linear equations?
The graph of a linear equation is a line.

Exercise 6.
Based on your work in Exercises 2â€“5, what conclusions can you draw about the points on a line and solutions to a linear equation?

Question 9.

Yes, the graph of 4x + 5y = $$\frac{3}{7}$$ is a line because it is a linear equation comprising linear expressions on both sides of the equal sign.

Question 10.
Is the graph of 6x2 – 2y = 7 a line? Explain.
Maybe. The equation 6x2 – 2y = 7 is not a linear equation because the expression on the left side of the equal sign is not a linear expression. If this were a linear equation, then I would be sure that it graphs as a line, but because it is not, I am not sure what the graph of this equation would look like.

Question 1.
Graph the equation y = $$\frac{5}{4}$$ x – 10 using the y – intercept point and slope.

What can you conclude about the equations y = $$\frac{5}{4}$$ x – 10 and 5x – 4y = 40?
Since the points (0, – 10), (4, – 5), and (8, 0) are common to both graphs, then the lines must be the same. There is only one line that can pass through two points. If you transform the equation y = $$\frac{5}{4}$$ x – 10 so that it is in standard form, it is the equation 5x – 4y = 40.
