    A linear equation is a mathematical equation that represents a straight line on a graph. It has the general form:

    ax + b = y


    • ‘a’ is the slope or the coefficient of the variable ‘x’
    • ‘b’ is the y-intercept or the point where the line crosses the y-axis
    • ‘x’ and ‘y’ are the variables

    Some examples of linear equations include:

    • y = 2x + 3
    • 4x – 5y = 10
    • x + y = 7

    Linear equations have a constant rate of change, meaning the slope is the same throughout the entire line. They are the simplest type of equation that represents a straight-line relationship between two variables. Linear equations are fundamental in algebra, geometry, and many other areas of mathematics.
