Point Slope Form


For each of the following equations, use the point-slope equation and rewrite the
equation of a line into slope-intercept form.
(1) P(2, 3), m=1 (2) P(0,3), m=2/3 (3) P(-4,-2), m= -5/4

Slope-Intercept Form
For each of the following tables, derive a linear equation that describes the data.
(4) (5)
x f(x) x f(x)
1 2 2 -1
3 9 4 -4
5 16 6 -7

Direct Relationships
(6) The pressure p experienced by a diver under water is related to the diver's depth d by an equation of the form
Object 1
where k is a constant. When d = 0 meters, the pressure is 1 atmosphere. The pressure at 100
meters is 10.94 atmospheres. Find the pressure a diver experiences at 50 meters.
