FINDING THE EQUATION OF A LINEAR FUNCTION WITHOUT USING THE SLOPE

Dominic Cordova, Dr. Ariel Ramirez, Department of Mathematics, Engineering and Computer Science, 280 La Entrada Rd, Los Lunas NM 87031

The concept of slope underlies all work with linear functions. To find the equation of a line in either slope-intercept or standard form, textbooks almost always calculate the slope. Here we present an alternative method of finding the equation of a line using systems of linear equations without the use of slope.
