Linear equations can be transformed by changing either the x -coefficient or the constant term.
Use this applet to see the effect of each change and relate this to a linear equation in the form

*y*=m*x*+ c Turn the trace on to see copies of the line when you move the slider.Note in these examples of Linear Equations

*y*is the subject of the equation. This is called the "slope intercept" form of a linear equation must be written with just*y*on the left hand side. The same is true for linear functions - f(*x*) =m*x*+ c - this is essentially the same as above but just uses a different notation.
