As explained below.


Linear equations are also called first degree equations, as the highest power of the variable (or pronumeral) in these equations is 1. E.g. x + 5 = 9 is an equation of the first degree, which is often called a linear equation

Given #f(x) = -x + 3#

#f(x) = (-1)(x)^1 + 3#

a. Degree of equation 1, since the highest x term has power 1.

b. Linear equation

c. Leading coefficient of the highest x term is -1 &

d. Constant term +3
