Straight Line and Linear Equations The two lines represent the equations 4x-6y=-4 and 2x+2y=6. Because the graphs of 4x-6y=12 and 2x+2y=6 are straight lines, its linear. y=3x+25           y=  f(x) = mx+c   f(x) represents a functional relationship to units sold, not specifying fn explicitly. mx+c  represents a generalized version, m is the coefficient, though m and … Continue reading Functions, Graphs, & Equations – Examples

Functions, Graphs, & Equations – Introduction

A function is a relation from inputs to possible outputs where each input is related to exactly one output, basically it is a rule that transforms numbers to other numbers. Functions show the relationships between different quantities. A real world example of a function would be taking a particular item say bread and relate it to other objects such … Continue reading Functions, Graphs, & Equations – Introduction
