Study Notes

Equations of Lines

  • The point-slope form equation is y - y_1 = m(x - x_1), where m is the gradient and (x_1, y_1) is a point on the line.
  • The gradient can be calculated using m = (y_2 - y_1) / (x_2 - x_1).
  • The gradient-intercept form equation is y = mx + c, where m is the gradient and c is the y-intercept.

Euler's Formula

  • Euler's formula is E = F + V - 2, where E is the number of edges, F is the number of faces, and V is the number of vertices in a polyhedral.

Midpoint Formula

  • The midpoint formula is M = ((x_1 + x_2) / 2, (y_1 + y_2) / 2), where (x_1, y_1) and (x_2, y_2) are two points on a line segment.

Distance Formula

  • The distance formula is √((y_2 - y_1)^2 + (x_2 - x_1)^2), where (x_1, y_1) and (x_2, y_2) are two points.

Intersection of Lines

  • To find the intersection of two lines, set the two equations equal to each other, i.e., y = y.
  • Solve for x and then substitute the value of x into one of the original equations to find y.
  • The product of the gradients of two perpendicular lines is -1.
