 ## Line

Line graphs are useful tools to track changes in a system over a period of time. Line graphs are drawn with independent data on a horizontal a-axis and dependent data on a vertical y-axis. These graphs can represent relationships between any two variables. For instance, a straight line can be used to represent the linear equation y = mx + b. When a straight line crosses the y-axis, the value of y will be b.

Line graphs are also used to track changes over a short period of time. Two line graphs that are parallel have the same slope. The slope indicates how a line increases or decreases from left to right. A negative slope indicates that a line is falling. However, a positive slope shows that a line is increasing from left to right.

Line graphs are a useful tool to identify the solution to a system of linear equations. These systems can be either a one-solution system, a consistent system, or an inconsistent system. In an inconsistent system, the y-intercept, slope, and lines will be different. On the other hand, a one-solution system has a single solution.

Line graphs can be a useful tool to help determine whether two or more equations are related to each other. This is especially important when there are a large number of solutions to an equation. A multiple line graph can be a more compact representation of the data than a grouped bar graph. It is also more space-efficient, meaning that multiple line graphs don’t have to be offset with data values.

Line graphs can be used to determine whether an inequality is true or false. To do this, the coordinates of the point of intersection are the solutions to the two variables. Generally, the x and y intercepts will be approximately -2.5 and 0 degrees. If a point is outside the solution region, the boundary line is dashed.

In a one-solution system, the x and y axis will be aligned on the same side of the graph. Graphs that are a combination of two or more lines will be a mixed degree system. One side of the graph will be a solution to the system while the other side will have no solutions. This is sometimes referred to as an infant many.

The scale is a distance between the tick marks on the axis. This is also called the degree of measurement. Some people believe that data must be measured continuously. Others believe that the degree of measurement is subject to debate.

An important equation to know is y = mx + b. This equation will help you to find the slope of a line. Generally, a straight line has a gradient of zero. However, perpendicular lines have a negative reciprocal gradient. Any solution that works in one equation will work in the other. Adding two variables will drop out the second variable. Similarly, subtracting the second variable from the first will result in a solution.

A system of equations can have infinite solutions. However, this is not always possible. Sometimes, two lines can be on top of each other and have an infinite number of solutions.
