1.

If a line makes an angle θ (0 ≤ θ < π) with x-axis in the positive direction, then θ is called inclination of the line and tanθ is called slope of the line. Slope of a line is denoted by m. If θ is an angle between two nonvertical lines having slopes m1, m2 then tanθ = If θ is the acute angle between the lines having slopes m1, m2 then tanθ = The equation of the horizontal line passing through (x1, y1) is y = y1. The equation of the vertical line passing through (x1, y1) is x = x1. Slope point form : The equation of the line passing through A(x1, y1) and having slope m is y−y1 = m(x−x1). Two points form : The equation of the line passing through (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) (x1 ≠ x2) is y−y1 = ⎜ ⎜

If a line cuts x-axis at A(a, 0) and y-axis at B(0, b), then a is called x-intercept and b is called y-intercept of the line. Slope intercept form : The equation of the line having slope m and y-intercept c is y = mx + c. b(y−y1) = 0

10. The equation of the line parallel to ax + by + c = 0 and passing through (x1, y1) is a(x−x1) + 11. The equation of the line perpendicular to ax + by + c = 0 and passing through (x1, y1) is
