**drwls**, Saturday, July 19, 2008 at 1:52amA "function" is a way of computing one number when you are given another. Linear equations with two variables define a such a functional relationship. Each of the two variables is a linear function of the other.

However, when you write an equation, linear or not, you are not always defining a function.

x + y = 14 is an equation, not a function, but can be used to derive the linear functions:

y = 14 - x and x = 14 - y

An example of nonlinear funtion is

y = 4 x^2
