## Related Questions No a linear equation are not the same as a linear function. The linear function is written as Ax+By=C. The linear equation is f{x}=m+b. It represents all solutions to the linear equation. Because its linear and the equation is a problem to solve  It is the locus of all points whose coordinates satisfy the equation of the line. Any variable in a linear equation is to the first power.The exponent is normally not written.  when you represent any equation in a graph it is said to be linear.Accordin to me , not having a definite equation , is said to be non-linear.  A quadratic equation must be able to be written in the form: y = ax2 + bx + c where a is not equal to zero. The graph will be a parabola. There must be a "squared" term and no larger exponent than "2". A linear equation will consist of variables only to the first power and the graph will be a straight line. Y = mx + b is an example of a liear equation where m will represent the slope and b will represent the y-intercept. By asking your teacher and listening to what she say and by taking note or after-school No. A pair of linear equation can have 0 solutions (they are parallel), or one solution (they cross at one point) or an infinite number of solutions (they represent the same line). A linear equation is the equation of a line and that consists of an infnite number of points. What you have, in x = -4 and y = -1/3, is a single point. A single point is not a line and so there cannot be a linear equation (suitable for a line) to represent a point. It appears to be a linear equation in the variable, g.It appears to be a linear equation in the variable, g.It appears to be a linear equation in the variable, g.It appears to be a linear equation in the variable, g. There is no "this statement" associated with the question, but the maximum number of points which lie of the graph of a linear equation in two variables is infinite. what a sufficent condition that shows a equation does not represent a linear function If you are talking about linear graphs, m refers to the gradient (aka slope or rate of change). An equation is linear if the highest power of the unknown in the equation is 1for example an equation with just a variable to the power one such as x, y and so on is linear but one with x2, y2 and above is not linear  A linear equation can have only one zero and that is the value of the variable for which the equation is true. The equation contains variables which are only raised to the first power. A linear equation has no higher powers than 1. This is linear. It represents the value of the y variable when the x variable is zero. The equation x=c where c is a constant is the equation of a vertical line. It can't be a function but it is linear so the answer is no. For example, the vertical line produced by the linear equation x = 3 does not represent a function. We cannot write this equation so that y is a function of x because the only x-value is 3 and this "maps" to every real-number y. A linear equation in n-dimensional space is of the form a1x1 + a2x2 + ... + anxn + c = 0 where the ai are numerical constants and the xi are variables. The equation represents a straight line in n-dimensional space. A non-linear equation is one in which one or more of the xi have a power other than 1. The equation will represent a curve. A linear system is one in which you will get the same result if you change an input by the same amount - from whatever starting level. Otherwise the system is non-linear.
