What is Linear functions?

linear function

Linear functions are of the general form, f(x) = ax+b, where ‘a’ and ‘b’ are constants. The relationship between ‘x’ and ‘f(x)’ in a linear equation gives us a straight line.

Linear equation


Slope is the rate of change in ‘f(x)’ with respect to the change in ‘x’.

Given two co-ordinate points: (x1, y1) and (x2, y2)

Then slope, m = (y2 –y1) / (x2 –y1)

Y-intercept is the point where the graph touches the Y-axis.

So, when x = 0, y = b -> point = (0,b)


Find the slope of the points: (1,2) and (4,5)

Slope, m = (5-2) / (4-1)

m = 3/3 -> m= 1

linear equation  

Example: Graph and write the equation of the line in slope-intercept form given a point (3, 4) and slope 2.

One thought on “What is Linear functions?

  1. Thanks for giving the brief information about Linear Functions . But I would like to share my experience here. My brother studied 12 the class in last year. Ans he is very much week in physics & mathematics. so I required a homework helper who will give the solution of this problem. My friend suggested contacting Courseworktutors. I just contacted them & they solve the problem. Thanks to the team for them my brother is able to get more maks in the respective subject.
