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

ax + b = y

Where:

• ‘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.
