## What You Need To Know...

Write an equation of a line or an inequality  with given information.

1. The benchmark will be assessed using MC (Multiple Choice) and FR (Fill in Response) items.
2. Items may give two points on a line, a point and the slope of a line, or its graph.
3. Items may require the use of coordinate geometry to find slopes, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and equations of lines.
4. Information given to determine equations of lines may include a table of values, the x- and y-intercepts, two points, the slope and a point, a graph, or an equation.
5. Equations of lines may be represented in standard, slope-intercept, or point-slope form.
6. Items may require students to rewrite equations of lines from standard form to slope-intercept form, and vice versa.
7. Items may require students to identify a linear inequality in slope-intercept form.
8. Fill-in response items may require that students provide a slope of a line parallel or perpendicular to a given line.
