Is linear relationship a direct variation? why or why not?

Assuming that the line is neither vertical or horizontal, it is a direct relationship. It indicates that one variable increases or decreases directly with changes in the other variable. A vertical or horizontal line indicates that one variable does not change at all as the other variable changes.

I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
