##
Linear Functions and Slope

###
Functions whose graphs are lines that are not parallel to the vertical axis are called Linear Functions

###
Graphs can be helpful in solving a problem when two variables are related in some way, or problems with time, money or speed.

###
There are two types of slope: Positive and Negative. Positive slope is when the lines extend from lower left to upper right and negative is the opposite, when the line extends from the upper left to the lower right of the graph.

###
y=mx+b is said to be slope-intercept form, because the slope (m) of the line and the Y intercept (b) can be read from the equation.
