1. I have no classmates and I didn't read your chapter 3.

All linear equations are functions. Good luck with the rest of your assignment. If you have more specific questions, please try again.

2. First, what is a function? In Cartesian mathematics, a function is an expression which, for any value of x, there exists one and only one value of y. A function can be either a straight line (linear) or a curvy line (non-linear).

If you look at a linear equation graphically, you will see a straight line, so all linear equations are functions.

A non-linear equation, such as y = x², is a function, though not a straight line, because for any value of x there exists one and only one value of y.

An example of a non-function would be y = ± x. In this case, for any value of y, there exists two values of x. Therefore, it is not a function.
