what is meant by-non proportional linear relationship?

  • math - ,

    That is an idiotic term invented by math teachers.

    Here are examples...

    y=3x is a linear equation, proportional.

    y=3x-2 is a linear equation, non-proportional.

    any linear equation is of the form
    y=mx+b

    When b is zero, it is a proportional linear equation.
    When b is nonzero, it is a "non-proportional" linear equation according to that thinking.

    Shakespear wrote Much Ado about nothing, as I recall, but is being reformed here.

    Loved your response!

    I always followed one of the sayings of Albert Einstein, who, loosely stated, said

    "Everything should be made as simple as possible, but ...
    not too simple."
