###### Topic Notes
Linear equations represent direct proportional relationships between x and y. A table of values contains the exact values of x and y. In this section, we will learn how to draw graphs based on the data from tables of values. From the tables and graphs, we will try to describe and determine whether the relationships are linear or not.
