Linear functionsAlgebraically, a linear function can be defined by a linear expression in one variable or by a linear equation in two variables. In the first case, the variable is the input and the value of the expression is the output. In the second case, one of the variables is designated as the input and determines a unique value of the other variable, which is the output.Algebraically, a linear function can be defined by a linear expression in one variable or by a linear equation in two variables.
