Graphical Representations definitions

?
Cartesian coordinate system
A system used to define the position of a point in 2- or 3- dimensional space where each axis is perpendicular to each other
1 of 6
A measure of the slop of a line, given by the equation (y2-y1)/(x2-x1)
2 of 6
intercept
To cut a line, curve or surface with another. In cartesian coordinates, the positive or negative distance from the origin to the point where a line, curve or suface cuts a given axis
3 of 6
linear
In algebra, describing an expression or equation of degree one. A linear equation can be represented as a straight line graph.
4 of 6
Describing an expression of the form y=ax^2+bx+c, where a,b and c are real numbers.
5 of 6
simultaneous equations
Two linear equations that apply simultaneously to given variables. The solution to the simultaneous equations is the pair of values for the variables that satisfies both equations.
