Math Grade 8 Quiz Understanding Linear and Non – linear Functions – 8.F.A.3

The equation y=mx+b defines a linear function, where the graph of the function is a straight line. Here, ‘m’ represents the slope of the line, and ‘b’ is the y-intercept. This standard requires students to understand the concept of linear functions and to identify functions that are not linear by examining their graphs and the relationships between the variables.
