1.3 Linear Equations and Functions and Lines Linear equation s equations of form: Ax + By = C where A, B, C are numbers its graph will be a straight line example: x + 2y = 4 here, A=1, B=2 and C=4. Its graph: Linear functions solving x + 2y = 4 for y, we get: y = -(1/2)x + 4 the function defined by this equation is (of course): f(x) = -(1/2)x + 4 its graph is (of course) the above such functions are called linear functions 1-3 p. 1

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.
