Determine whether the function is linear, constant, or neither
y = x3  x2 + 8
a. Linear
b. Constant
c. Neither
I think it is neither

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
