Do all linear equations need to be proportional?

No.A directly proportional graph has an equation of the form y = mx. It always passes through the origin.A linear graph will have an equation in the from y = mx + c. This has a y-intercept at (0, c). It doesn't pass through the origin unless c = 0. The directly proportional graph is a special case of a linear graph.

What are the properties of proportional and non-proportional tables and graphs?

If two quantities are proportional, then they have a constant ratio.If the ratio is not constant, the two quantities are said to be non-proportional.Proportional will always go through the origin on a graph. (0,0)Graph will always be a straight line.Non-proportional line does not go through the origin.
