Because its linear and the equation is a problem to solve

It is a linear equation. The highest power of x in the equation is 1 (3x1-4=12) so its "degree" is 1, and equations of "degree 1" are called linear equations.

Because, if plotted on a Cartesian plane, all solutions to the equation would lie on a straight line.

Linear equations are always functions.

There is no quadratic equation that is 'linear'. There are linear equations and quadratic equations. Linear equations are equations in which the degree of the variable is 1, and quadratic equations are those equations in which the degree of the variable is 2.

we study linear equation in other to know more about quadratic equation

It is a system of linear equations which does not have a solution.

A linear equation is an equation that in math. It is a line. Liner equations have no X2. An example of a linear equation is x-2 A linear equation also equals y=mx+b. It has a slope and a y-intercept. A non-linear equation is also an equation in math. It can have and x2 and it is not a line. An example is y=x2+3x+4 Non linear equations can be quadratics, absolute value or expodentail equations.

No, linear equations don't have x2. Equation with x and y are usually linear equations. Equations with either x2 or y2 (but never both) are usually quadratic equations.

The equations are equivalent.

They are not. An inequality cannot, by definition, be the same as an equation.

i want an example of geometric linear equations
