## Friday Fun!

I’ve developed a worksheet for graphing linear equations that is somewhat interesting.

Although it doesn’t introduce new concepts, students always have some difficulty with the format –

which is matching.

Also, it is the type of matching where you can’t use the process of elimination as some questions have more than one answer, and some equations satisfy more than one question.

FRIDAY FUN

Match each description below with the appropriate letter(s).

Some statements may satisfy more than one of the equations.

Find the equation of a line:

1) Through the point (1, −1)
2) Through the points (5, 2) and (−1, − 4)
3) With a slope of − 3
4) With a slope of 0.5 through the point (5, 6)
5) Through the point (−3, − 6)

A) 3y + x = −21
B) y = x − 3
C) y + 3x = 2
D) 2y = x + 7
E) y = 2x − 3

AND

Find the equation of a line:

1) Through the points (4,−4) and (12,2)
2) Through the point (8,−1)
3) With a slope 1/3 through the point (5,−7)
4) Through the points (1,4) and (−3,1)
5) With a slope of − 2 through the point (5, 5)
6) With a slope of 3/4

A) 4y − 3x = 13
B) y = 0.75x − 7
C) y+7= 1/3(x-5)
D) 2x + y =15
