1.2   Applications of Linear  Functions n Many situations involve two variables,  x   (independent variable) and  (dependent variable),  with a linear relationship. n If  y  is expressed in terms of  x , then  y  is a  linear  function  of  x . n For any value of  x , the corresponding value of  y   can be calculated.
