Linear equations may be solved by isolating the variable or variables. Solving linear equations involves undoing whatever operations have been done to the variable and putting the variable alone on one side of the equal ... More »

The parent function for the linear equation is y = x. In general terms, the parent function provides a template for the range and the domain, which holds true for other equations within the family. More »

Linear algebra originated as the study of linear equations and the relationship between a number of variables. Linear algebra specifically studies the solution of simultaneous linear equations. More »

Linear graphs represent the behavior of dependent variables that sit along a straight line with regard to independent variables, while nonlinear graphs represent variables that don't. Common functions that result in nonl... More »

The graph of a linear equation forms a straight line, while a non-linear equation's graph does not form a straight line.Most equations can be graphed on a Cartesian coordinate plane using the variables x and y. More »

Linear sequences are simple series of numbers that change by the same amount at each interval. The simplest linear sequence is one where each number increases by one each time: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and so on. More »
