Request Description

The similarities and differences between functions and linear equations is the fact they are set up the same. Example: 4q-3p=22. Also, in a linear equation you have “x” and “y” which forms an ordered pair and in a function you have your one set to another or your domain and your range which determines your function. Differences could include when solving a linear function you solve for x and y and when solving a function you solve for x and f(x). Also in a function only one domain can equal to one range. Most linear equations are functions (that is, for every value of x, there is only one corresponding value of y). When you take x and plug it into y = mx + b, you get one and one only possible value back for y. Granted you can draw a LINE that's not a function, like the line "x = 6"; however this is not a linear equation since there is no way to put it in the form of y = mx + b.

Example:

x^2+y^2=4

X=y^2
