**A set of all X's is called the DOMAIN**

**A set of all Y's is called the RANGE**

**A FUNCTION is when the X value of each X,Y pair of coordinates is always a different value.**

**A sample set of XY pairs of a function { (5,2) (6,4) (7,8) }**

A sample set of XY pairs "Not" a function { (5,2) (5,4) (5,8) }

A sample set of XY pairs "Not" a function { (5,2) (5,4) (5,8) }

**f(x) = y or in this case f(x) = 2x + 1 since y = 2x + 1**

f(DOMAIN independent value) = (RANGE dependent value)

f(DOMAIN independent value) = (RANGE dependent value)

In this example the range y = 2x + 1 | This is a function, so... f(x) = 2x + 1 |

EXAMPLE 1 when x = - 1: | EXAMPLE 2 when x = + 2: |

Given; f(x) = 2x + 1 When; x = -1 then; f(-1) = 2(-1) + 1 so; f(-1) = - 2 + 1 and; f(-1) = -1 conclusion; f(x) = -1 when x = -1 | Given; f(x) = 2x + 1when; x = 2 then; f(2) = 2(2) + 1 so; f(2) = 4 + 1 and; f(2) = 5 conclusion; f(x) = 5 when x = 2 |

The equation of a straight line can be written in three different forms. Below are three equation forms and proof they are all equal to each other.

y – y

Where m=slope and y – y

y = mx + b ::

Where m=slope, b=y interecpt when x=0

Ax + By = C ::

_{1}= m(x - x_{1}) ::**Point slope equation form.**Where m=slope and y – y

_{1 }and x - x_{1 }are points on the liney = mx + b ::

**Slope Intercept form.**Where m=slope, b=y interecpt when x=0

Ax + By = C ::

**Standard form.**
Example:

Lets take the straight line that crosses two (x, y) points of (3,2) and (8,4). The equations for this line are shown below. All three forms of the equation represent the same straight line shown in the graph.

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

**Point slope form****y = 2/5x + .8 ::**

**Slope intercept form****2x - 5y = - 4 ::**

**Standard form**
We now will provide proof that the line shown in the graph can be represented by an equation in three different forms. Since all the equation forms are equal to one another they can be converted from one form to another and still represent the line. Notice also that if we are given two sets of (x,y) points on the line we can calculate the line slope and y intercept. This is all the information we need to fully describe the line in any of the three equation formats.
