# Linear Equations Formula

A linear equation looks like any other equation. It is made up of two expressions set equal to each other. It is equal to the product that is directly proportional to the other plus the constant.

The Linear equation formula is given by

$\large y=mx+b$

Where,
m determines the slope of that line,
b determines the point at which the line crosses
