# Objective - To graph linear equations using x ```Identifying
Linear
Functions and
Equations
Objective: I can and I will identify
a linear function.
What is a linear function?
- What do we remember about functions?
- A linear function is a function whose graph forms a
straight line.

Standard Form of a Linear Equation
Ax + By = C
•A, B, and C are real numbers.
•A and B are not both 0.
When a linear equation is written in standard form:
•x and y both have exponents of 1
•x and y are not multiplied together
•x and y aren’t denominators, exponents, or radical signs.
Is it a Linear Function - Standard Form
x = 2y + 4

Ex. 4) Is it a Linear Function - Standard Form
y = 5x - 9

Weather…
 The National Weather Service releases weather balloons twice
daily at over 90 locations in the United States in order to collect
data for meteorologists. The height (h) in feet of a balloon is a
function the time (t) in seconds after the balloon is released.
 Make a table showing the height of a balloon after (t) seconds
for t=0 through t=10.
 A balloon bursts after a flight of about 7200 seconds.
the function and identify the domain and range.
