LINEAR FUNCTIONS—EQUATIONS AND GRAPHS A linear function is a function f given by the general form f(x) = mx + b, in which m and b are constants. In algebraic functions, especially where defining a line on the xy-plane is involved, the variable y is often used to represent f(x), and so the general form becomes y = mx + b. In this form, each x-value (member of the domain set) can be paired with its corresponding y-value (member of the range set) by application of the function. Example: In the function y = 3x + 2, if the domain of x is the set of all positive integers less than 5, then applying the function over the entire domain of x results in the following set of (x,y) pairs: S = {(1,5), (2,8), (3,11), (4,14)}. In addition to questions requiring you to solve a system of linear equations (by using either the substitution or addition-subtraction method), the new SAT includes questions requiring you to recognize any of the following: • A linear func...
