### Transcript of Section 2.2 Graphing Equations: Point-Plotting, Intercepts, and Symmetry

• Slide 1
• Section 2.2 Graphing Equations: Point-Plotting, Intercepts, and Symmetry
• Slide 2
• Graphing Equations by Plotting Points The graph of an equation in two variables, x and y, consists of all the points in the xy plane whose coordinates (x,y) satisfy the equation.
• Slide 3
• Example Does the point (-1,0) lie on the graph y = x 3 1? No
• Slide 4
• Graphing an Equation of a Line by Plotting Points Graph the equation: y = 2x-1 xy=2x-1(x,y) -2 0 1 2
• Slide 5
• Graphing a Quadratic Equation by Plotting Points Graph the equation: y=x-5 xy=x-5(x,y) -2 0 1 2
• Slide 6
• Graphing a Cubic Equation by Plotting Points Graph the equation: y=x xy=x(x,y) -2 0 1 2
• Slide 7
• X and Y Intercepts An xintercept of a graph is a point where the graph intersects the x- axis. A y-intercept of a graph is a point where the graph intersects the y- axis.
• Slide 8
• Find the x and y intercepts. x-intercepts: (1,0) (5,0) y-intercept: (0,5)
• Slide 9
• What are the x and y intercepts of this graph given by the equation: y=x-2x-5x+6 x-intercepts: (-2,0)(1,0)(3,0) y-intercept: (0,6)
• Slide 10
• How do we find the x and y intercepts algebraically? First lets examine the x-intercepts. For example: The graph to the right has the equation y=x-6x+5. What is the y-coordinate for both x-intercepts? Zero. So to find x intercepts we can plug in zero for y and solve for x: 0=x-6x+5 0=(x-5)(x-1) x-5=0 x-1=0 x=5,1 The x-intercepts are (1,0) and (5,0)
• Slide 11
• Next, lets find the y-intercept. Equation: y=x-6x+5. What is the x-coordinate for the y-intercept? Zero. So to find the y-intercept we can plug in zero for x and solve for y: y=0-6(0)+5 y=5 The y-intercept is (0,5)
• Slide 12
• Symmetry The word symmetry conveys balance. Our graphs can be symmetric with respect to the x-axis, y-axis and origin.
• Slide 13
• This graph is symmetric with respect to the x-axis. Notice the coordinates: (2,1) and (2,-1). The y values are opposite.
• Slide 14
• This graph is symmetric with respect to the y-axis. What do you notice about the coordinates of this graph? The x values are opposite.
• Slide 15
• This graph is symmetric with respect to the origin. What do you notice about the coordinates (2,3) and (-2,-3)? Both the x values and y values are opposite.
• Slide 16
• Summary If a graph is symmetric about the X-axis, the y values are opposite Y-axis, the x values are opposite Origin, both the x and y values are opposites
• Slide 17
• Testing for Symmetry with respect to the x-axis Test the equation y=x Solution: Replace y with y (-y)=x y=x The equation is the same therefore it is symmetric with respect to the x-axis.
• Slide 18
• Testing from symmetry with respect to the y-axis Test the equation y=x Solution: Replace x with x y=(-x) y=-x The equation is NOT the same therefore it is NOT symmetric with respect to the y- axis.
• Slide 19
• Testing for Symmetry with respect to the origin Test the equation y=x Solution: Replace x with x and replace y with -y (-y)=(-x) y=-x The equation is NOT the same therefore it is NOT symmetric with respect to the origin.
• Slide 20
• Test for Symmetry: y = x 5 + x Y-axis: x changes to x Y = (-x) 5 + -x y = -(x 5 + x) No!
• Slide 21
• X-axis: y changes to y -y = x 5 + x y = -(x 5 + x) No!
• Slide 22
• Origin: y changes to y and x changes to x -y = (-x) 5 + -x -y = -(x 5 + x) y = x 5 + x Yes!
