A linear function is graphed as a straight line and contains one independent variable and one dependent variable, whereas an exponential function has a rapid increase or decrease along a curved line in a graph. Linear fu... More »

Solve quadratic function word problems by determining each term of the quadratic equation and then solving for x when the equation is equal to zero. A quadratic equation is expressed as ax^2 + bx + c = 0 when in standard... More »

To write linear equations from word problems, the student must first decide which quantities to assign variables to, and then decide what operations must be performed in order to solve the problem. For example, the unkno... More »

When applied in mathematics, the term "linear" refers to any equation that, or any function whose equation is, a straight line. When placed on a graph, the formula follows 'y = mx+b' where 'm' is equal to the slope and '... More » Math Algebra
