4: Linear Functions - Mathematics

Recall that a function is a relation that assigns to every element in the domain exactly one element in the range. Linear functions are a specific type of function that can be used to model many real-world applications, such as plant growth over time. In this chapter, we will explore linear functions, their graphs, and how to relate them to data.

  • 4.0: Introduction to Linear Functions
    Imagine placing a plant in the ground one day and finding that it has doubled its height just a few days later. Although it may seem incredible, this can happen with certain types of bamboo species. These members of the grass family are the fastest-growing plants in the world. One species of bamboo has been observed to grow nearly 1.5 inches every hour. A constant rate of change, such as the growth cycle of this bamboo plant, is a linear function.
  • 4.1: Linear Functions
    The ordered pairs given by a linear function represent points on a line. Linear functions can be represented in words, function notation, tabular form, and graphical form. The rate of change of a linear function is also known as the slope. An equation in the slope-intercept form of a line includes the slope and the initial value of the function. The initial value, or y-intercept, is the output value when the input of a linear function is zero.
  • 4.2: Modeling with Linear Functions
    We can use the same problem strategies that we would use for any type of function. When modeling and solving a problem, identify the variables and look for key values, including the slope and y-intercept. Draw a diagram, where appropriate. Check for reasonableness of the answer. Linear models may be built by identifying or calculating the slope and using the y-intercept. The x-intercept may be found by setting y=0, which is setting the expression mx+b equal to 0.
  • 4.3: Fitting Linear Models to Data
    Scatter plots show the relationship between two sets of data. Scatter plots may represent linear or non-linear models. The line of best fit may be estimated or calculated, using a calculator or statistical software. Interpolation can be used to predict values inside the domain and range of the data, whereas extrapolation can be used to predict values outside the domain and range of the data. The correlation coefficient, r , indicates the degree of linear relationship between data.

4. Linear DEs of Order 1

For linear DEs of order 1, the integrating factor is:

The solution for the DE is given by multiplying y by the integrating factor (on the left) and multiplying Q by the integrating factor (on the right) and integrating the right side with respect to x, as follows:

Example 1

Now for the integrating factor:

We need to apply the following formula: `ye^(intPdx)=int(Qe^(intPdx))dx`

For the left hand side of the formula, we have

For the right hand of the formula, Q = 7 and the IF = x -3 , so:

Applying the outer integral:

Now, applying the whole formula, `ye^(intPdx)=intQe^(intPdx)dx`, we have

Multiplying throughout by x 3 gives the general solution for `y`.:

Is it correct? Differentiate this answer to make sure it produces the differential equation in the question.

Here is the solution graph of our answer for Example 1 (I've used K = 0.5 ).

Example 2

`"IF"=e^(intPdx)` `=e^(int cot x dx)` `=e^(ln sin x)` `=sin x`

Apply the formula, `ye^(intPdx)=intQe^(intPdx)dx` to obtain:

The integral needs a simple substitution: `u = sin x`, `du = cos x dx`

Divide throughout by sin x to get the required general solution of the DE:

Here is the solution graph of our answer for Example 2 (I've used K = 0.1 ) .

It is a composite trigonometric curve, where the main shape is the cosecant curve, and the "wiggles" are due to the addition of the (sin x)/2 part:

Typical solution graph using `K=0.1`.

Example 3

Dividing throughout by dx to get the equation in the required form, we get:

Now the integrating factor in this example is

Using `ye^(intPdx)=intQe^(intPdx)dx+K`, we have:

Here is the solution graph for Example 3 (I've used K = 5 ).

It was necessary to zoom out (a lot) to see what is going on in this graph.

Typical solution graph using `K=5`.

Example 4

We need to get the equation in the form of a linear DE of order 1.

Expand the bracket and divide throughout by dx:

Equations and Expressions: Level 4

The key idea of equations and expressions at level 4 is that linear relationships between variables can be represented by a linear equation.

  • a linear equation can involve number all four number operations (not including exponents)
  • a linear equation can be solved in order to find an unknown variable in a particular situation

Linear equations take the form:
y = mx + c.
At level 4 m is restricted to whole numbers (i.e. numbers without decimal points) and c is restricted to integers (i.e. can be either positive or negative whole numbers). When linear equations are represented on a graph, they form a straight line with the value of “m” corresponding to the slope and “c” representing the point where the line crosses the y axis.

Simple linear equations describe the relationship between two related variables, x and y. Any value of x has a corresponding value of y, and the linear relationship uniquely links the values of these two sets of variables. As the value of x varies, so does the value of y. Because the values of x and y are uniquely linked, a linear equation can be solved in order to find an unknown variable in a particular situation.

When working with equations that balance, such as linear equations, both sides of the equals sign need to be preserved for the equation to remain correct. For example, when the same number is subtracted from each side the equation remains accurate. For example 3p – 6 = 18 so 3p = 24 (adding six to both sides) so p = 8 (dividing both sides by three).

This key idea develops from the key idea of equations and expressions at level 3 that equations show relationships of equality between parts on either side of the equal sign.

This key idea is extended to the key idea of equations and expressions at level 5 that some types of relationships between variables can be represented by a quadratic equation.

A linear function is a polynomial function in which the variable x has degree at most one: [2]

Such a function is called linear because its graph, the set of all points ( x , f ( x ) ) in the Cartesian plane, is a line. The coefficient a is called the slope of the function and of the line (see below).

The slope of a nonvertical line is a number that measures how steeply the line is slanted (rise-over-run). If the line is the graph of the linear function f ( x ) = a x + b , this slope is given by the constant a .

from which one can immediately see the slope a and the initial value f ( 0 ) = b , which is the y-intercept of the graph y = f ( x ) .

Example Edit

Note that the graph includes points with negative values of x or y, which have no meaning in terms of the original variables (unless we imagine selling meat to the butcher). Thus we should restrict our function f ( x ) to the domain 0 ≤ x ≤ 2 .

Also, we could choose y as the independent variable, and compute x by the inverse linear function: x = g ( y ) = − 1 2 y + 2 <2>>y+2> over the domain 0 ≤ y ≤ 4 .

If the coefficient of the variable is not zero ( a ≠ 0 ), then a linear function is represented by a degree 1 polynomial (also called a linear polynomial), otherwise it is a constant function – also a polynomial function, but of zero degree.

A straight line, when drawn in a different kind of coordinate system may represent other functions.

For example, it may represent an exponential function when its values are expressed in the logarithmic scale. It means that when log(g(x)) is a linear function of x , the function g is exponential. With linear functions, increasing the input by one unit causes the output to increase by a fixed amount, which is the slope of the graph of the function. With exponential functions, increasing the input by one unit causes the output to increase by a fixed multiple, which is known as the base of the exponential function.

If both arguments and values of a function are in the logarithmic scale (i.e., when log(y) is a linear function of log(x) ), then the straight line represents a power law:

On the other hand, the graph of a linear function in terms of polar coordinates:

Ex 4.4 Class 9 Maths Question 1.
Give the geometric representations of y – 3 as an equation
(i) in one variable.
(ii) in two variables.
The given linear equation is
y = 3 …(i)
(i) The representation of the solution on the number line is shown in the figure below, where y = 3 is treated as an equation in one variable.

(ii) We know that y = 3 can be written as
0. x + y = 3
Which is a linear equation in the variables x and y. This is represented by a line. Now, all the values of x are permissible because 0.x is always 0. However, y must satisfy the equation y = 3.
Note that, the graph AB is a line parallel to the x-axis and at a distance of 3 units of the upper side of it.

Ex 4.4 Class 9 Maths Question 2.
Give the geometric representations of 2x + 9 = 0 as an equation
(i) in one variable
(ii) in two variables
Given linear equation is 2x + 9 = 0 i.e., x = –
(i) If x = – is treated as an equation in one variable, then it has a unique
solution x = – .
So, it is a point on the number line as shown below :

(ii) Given equation 2x + 9 = 0 can be written as 2x + 0 . y + 9 = 0, which is a linear equation in two variables x and y.
We can write the given equation as,

When y=1, then = –
When y=2, then = –
When y=3, then = –

Now Playing the points – , – – paper and joining then ,we get a line PQ as a solution of 2x+9=0

Thus, the graph PQ is a line parallel to the y-axis at a distance of units in the direction of negative X-axis.

Solving a Linear Equation

The way to solve a linear equation is to rewrite it in such a form that on the one side of the equality sign we end up with one term only containing x, and on the other side we have one term which is a constant. To achieve this we can perform several operations. Fist of all we can add or subtract a number on both sides of the equation. We must make sure that we perform the action on both sides such that the equality is preserved. Also we can multiply both sides with a number, or divide by a number. Again we must make sure that we perform the same action on both sides of the equality sign.

Our first step would be subtracting 3x on both sides to get:

Then we subtract 4 on both sides:

Finally, we divide both sides by 4 to get our answer:

To check if this answer is indeed correct we can fill it in on both sides of the equation. If the answer is correct we should get two equal answers:

So indeed both sides equal 1/2 if we choose x = - 1/2, which means that the lines intersect at the point (-1/2 , 1/2) in the coordinate system.

7th & 8th Grade Math - Comparing Linear Functions

In fall of 2008, Sally Keyes (math coach), Kamaljit Sangha (7/8 math teacher/department leader) and Cecilio Dimas (7/8 math teacher) developed our first lesson on cost-analysis. By the end of fall 2008, all eleven 7th grade classes, regular and accelerated, had been taught the DVD Plan lesson. The foundation of this lesson is constructing, communicating, and evaluating student-generated tables while making comparisons between three different financial plans. Students had been given three different DVD rental plans and asked to analyze each one to see if they could determine when the 3 different DVD plans cost the same amount of money, if ever. Using this idea as an anchor problem taken from our original pre-assessment with the MARS task "Gym," we were devising avenues for our students to explore and understand specific multiple representations of breaking points. We believe that being able to understand multiple representations for the breaking even points in a written explanation, a table, a graph, and an algebraic rule is critical to success in algebra. The design of our year-long lesson study is to address each of these multiple representations: verbal, tabular, graphical, and algebraic generalization. Our perception is that students tend to see the graph as the “last thing” with no real connection to the mathematics of the situation or to other representations and that was our reason to put it after the verbal and tabular representations.

-Comparisons of different deals: do these representations make mathematical sense and do they match the mathematics of the three plans?
-Verbal descriptions
-Tables graphs
-Algebraic rules
