A linear equation looks like any other equation.
It is made up of two expressions set equal to each other. A linear equation is special because:
 It has one or two variables.
 No variable in a linear
equation is raised to a power greater than 1 or used as the denominator of a fraction.
 When you find pairs
of values that make the linear equation true and plot those pairs on a coordinate grid, all of the points for any one equation
lie on the same line. Linear equations graph as straight lines.
Recall the following:
 A
linear equation is a polynomial of degree 1.
 In
order to solve for the unknown variable, you must isolate the variable
 In the order of operations, multiplication and division are completed before addition and subtraction
