Determine whether the function is linear, constant, or neither

y = x3 - x2 + 8



a. Linear

b. Constant

c. Neither
I think it is neither

  • calcius -

    If t were linear it would be of form
    y = m x + b
    if it were constant it would be of form
    y = b
    it is in fact a cubic polynomial.
    By the way we usually write exponents as:
    y = x^3 - x^2 + 8
