A linear equation is an algebraic equation in which each term is either a constant
or the product ... A simple **example** of a linear equation with only one variable, x,
may be written in the form: ax + **b** = 0, where a and **b** are constants and a ≠ 0. ....
It may be helpful to think about this in terms of **y** = **b** + **mx**; where the line passes ...
