Example, videos and solutions to help Grade 8 students learn how to predict the shape of a graph of a linear equation by finding and plotting solutions on a coordinate
• Students graph linear equations in standard form, ax + by = c(a or b = 0), that produce a horizontal or a vertical line.
• A linear equation in standard form, ax + by = c, where a = 1 and b = 0 is the graph of the equation x = c. The
graph of x = c is the vertical line passing through the point (c, 0).
• A linear equation in standard form, ax + by = c where a = 0 and b = 1 is the graph of the equation y = c. The graph of is the horizontal line passing through the point (0, c).
