## Linear Function Formula

A linear equation is an equation in which every term is either just a constant or the product of a constant and a variable of exponent 1. A function is a relation in which every input has exactly one output. Every linear equation represents a line. All lines except vertical lines are functions. Let us learn linear function formulas along with a few solved examples.

### What are Linear Function Formulas?

There are multiple linear function formulas to find the equation of a line depending on the available information. Linear function formulas are applicable to find the equation of any line except vertical line as vertical line is NOT a function.
The linear function formulas are:

• y = mx + b (slope-intercept form)
• y − y1 = m (x − x1) y−y= m(x−x1) (point-slope form)
• Ax + By = C (standard form)
• x/a + y/b = 1 (intercept form)

Here,

• (x, y) in every equation is a general point on the line.
• ( x1, y1) (x1,y1) is any fixed point on the line.
• m is the slope of the line. It can be defined as Rise/Run (or) y2 - y1/x2 - x1 where ( x1, y1) (x1, y1) and (x2, y2) (x2, y2) are any two points on the line.
• (a, 0) and (0, b) are the x-intercept and y-intercept respectively.
• A, B, and C are constants.
