### Is y equal xsquare minus 4 a linear function?

No. That function describes a parabola who's vertex is at the point (0, -4).

### Why use LMTD and not mean temperature difference?

Because the temperature change that occurs across the heat exchanger from the entrance to the exit is not linear, and a logarithmic function best describes this temperature change.

No

### Is linear function the same as linear equations?

No a linear equation are not the same as a linear function. The linear function is written as Ax+By=C. The linear equation is f{x}=m+b.

### What is the end behavior of a linear function?

Assuming the domain is unbounded, the linear function continues to be a linear function to its end.

### Is an exponential function linear?

No. An exponential function is not linear. A very easy way to understand what is and what is not a linear function is in the word, "linear function." A linear function, when graphed, must form a straight line.P.S. The basic formula for any linear function is y=mx+b. No matter what number you put in for the m and b variables, you will always make a linear function.

### Is a linear equation the same as a function?

No a linear equation are not the same as a linear function. The linear function is written as Ax+By=C. The linear equation is f{x}=m+b.
