A linear equation is that of a straight line. Any one of the infinitely many points on the line will be solutions.

If the equation is in terms of the variables x and y, just pick any two values of x, solve for y and the results will be the coordinates of two solutions.

What is y-c equals -2?

It is a linear equation in two unknown variables, y and c. One linear equation in two unknowns cannot be solved, it can only be arranged so that one or the other variable is the subject of the equation. However, that requires you to identify which variable is to be made the subject of the equation.


Is y equals 5x2 plus 2 a linear equation?

Assuming that the 2 in "5x2" is a power (5x2), then no, this is not a linear equation. It is a parabolic equation.


When you square each side of an equation is the resulting equation equivalent to the original?

No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2No. The resulting equation has more solutions. For example, x = 2 has only one solution and that is x = 2.butx2= 4, the squared equation, has two solutions: x = +2 and x = -2


What statement must be true of an equation before you can use the quadratic formula to find the solutions?

The quadratic formula can be used to find the solutions of a quadratic equation - not a linear or cubic, or non-polynomial equation. The quadratic formula will always provide the solutions to a quadratic equation - whether the solutions are rational, real or complex numbers.

Can you have division in a linear equation?

A linear equation/function can have division in the equation, as long as a non-constant variable is not the denominator.Examples:1 y = (1/2)x + 2 Linear2 y/3 = (x - 1)/3 Linear3 y = 1/x + a Non linear


How many solutions does the equation 14x plus 2 equals 12x have?

That looks like a linear equation (no quadratic or higher terms), so you can expect it to have a single solution. However, actually solving the equation is not difficult; do it, to confirm this.

What is an equation of a non linear equation?

A non-linear equation is any equation which includes variables with a degree other than one. Therefore, any equation involving x2, x3, x4, .... would be non-linear. For example: y= 3x+2 is linear, because x and y are both degree 1 (no exponent) y= 2x2 is non-linear, because x is degree 2.


How can you tell when an equation in one variable has infinitely many solutions or no solutions?

There is no simple method. The answer depends partly on the variable's domain. For example, 2x = 3 has no solution is x must be an integer, or y^2 = -9 has no solution if y must be a real number but if it can be a complex number, it has 2 solutions.

What are linear and nonlinear regression?

A linear equation is an equation that in math. It is a line. Liner equations have no X2. An example of a linear equation is x-2 A linear equation also equals y=mx+b. It has a slope and a y-intercept. A non-linear equation is also an equation in math. It can have and x2 and it is not a line. An example is y=x2+3x+4 Non linear equations can be quadratics, absolute value or expodentail equations.


Is y equals x2 plus 2 a linear equation?

No, y=x^2 + 2 is a quadratic equation. A linear equation is one in the form y=mx+b. A quadratic has a form y=ax^2+bx+c.


Why does 14.8 have 2 solutions?

It does not have any solutions! 14.8 is a number, not an equation, inequality or question and so has no solutions.


Is y equals x-2 a linear equations or not?

Yes, since y = x - 2 has the degree of 1 [or the highest exponent of the equation], x - 2 is the linear equation.
