Making Connections

Graphed Lines

The four equations are graphed on one coordinate plane using Desmos.com and shown below to compare their linear characteristics.What patterns have graphs that are similar and how?

  • The graphs for Patterns 1 and 4 have the same growth rate or slope of 2.  
  • The graphs for Patterns 2 and 3 are parallel. Graphs with the same slope are parallel.
  • The graphs for Patterns 2 and 4 have the same y-intercept of \((0,1)\).
  1. Name two other patterns with graphs that are parallel and name the slope.
  2. Name the y-intercepts for Patterns 1, 3 and 4.

What patterns have graphs that are different and how?

  • The graphs for Patterns 1 and 3 have different slopes.
  1. Name the graphs for patterns that have different slopes.
  2. Name the graphs for patterns that have different y-intercepts.
