My Real-Life Linear Function

by Ms. Story

My linear function is a music stand.

This stand is behind the front desk where I work in Allen Residence Hall at Baylor University.


Two points that it lies on on the graph are (0,2) and (-1,-1).

Equations of my line.

Slope-Intercept Form: y = 3x+2


Point-Slope Form: y+1 = 3(x+1)


Standard Form: -3x+y = 2

Parallel & Perpendicular Lines

Parallel Lines


y = 3x - 29

y = 3x + 310


Perpendicular Lines

y = -⅓x - 29

y = -⅓x + 48
