## Linear Functions

Linear functions show proportional dependencies. This means that the ratio of two quantities to each other always remains the same. The function graph is therefore a straight line.

The general form is: $f\left(x\right)=mx+n$. In this equation, $m$ is the gradient, calculated from ,
and $n$ is the intercept of the graph with the y-axis.
