Understanding graphs of linear relationships

Understanding graphs of linear relationships

Without understanding and analyzing, graphs of linear relationships are just lines and dots. In this lesson, we will learn the skills to analyze the graphs and get useful information from them.
Basic concepts: Ratios, Proportions,
