The dots on a linear graph form a straight line. The dots on a non-linear graph do not form a straight line.

Linear graphs make straight lines. Non-linear graphs make thins like parabolas, hyperbolas, and ellipses

You can decide from a graph wheter a ralationship is linear or non linear if the line is staight is linear but if the line is not straight is not linear.

no you cannot

a non linear graph pretty much means the points on the graph do not create a straight line. in order for a graph to be linear both the x axis and y axis have to increase/decrease at a constant rate, while in a non-linear graph when you connect the point it creates a line that isn't straight. however, in experimental data if the points are a bit off, but still in one general area, it can be considered linear.

does not form a staight line on a graph

Equations without exponents generate straight lines when graphed, hence are called linear. If there is an exponent such as x2, then you get curved lines, and the graph is non linear.

[ y = mx + b ] is.m = the slope of the graphed lineb = the 'y' value where the graphed line crosses the y-axis.
