Point Slope Equation

y-y1=m(x-x1)

Point Slope Standard Form

Ax+Bx=C

Vertex

(-b/m,c)

Relation

Set of pairs of input and output values

Domain

Mapping Diagram

Links domain to range

Function

Relation in which one element of domain is paired with EXACTLY one element in range

Vertical Line Test

If passes 2 points on graph=> NOT a function

Coinciding Lines

Same Line ( All Real )

Inconsistent Lines

ParallelI

Independent Lines

Have one solution; Different slopes

Subsitution

Solving for one variable in one equation & plugging it into the second

Elimination- Linear Combination

Add equations together to eliminate a variable

Quadratic Function

f(x)=ax2+bx+c

Linear Function

f(x)=x+c

Vertex of a Quadratic Function

(-b/2a, Plug it in)

Vertex Form of a Quadratic Function
