    Slope of a Straight Line

    Hello, I am learning about the straight line and understand what the terms "rise" and "run" represent very well. I also understand how they are derived from the points positions in the plane. I really do not understand why the slope of a straight line is defined as "rise over run". How come is...

    General form of an equation of a straight line

    Ok this seems easy but I am little confused... I am trying to find the general equation of a straight line that does not pass through the first quadrant. Looking at y= mx +c , I realise m will have to be negative and c negative for sloping lines but I can't encapsulate the vertical lines and...

    Solving cubic equations using straight line?

    Hi, I'm having trouble with part c of this question. Solving algebraically I can see that the solutions are x=0, x=2, x=-2 but I can't see how find these solutions by "drawing a suitable straight line on the grid"? I must be missing something obvious here! Thanks

    Complex Analysis - Mapping of a straight line and Principal value

    I've done part a) I just simply cubed z and expanded, then seperated real and imaginary. I assume this is all that's needed? For part b) I have no idea how to do it.
