Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a linear equation amounts to the highest degree being a "1": y = x+3 when you start sqaureing things, you start to bend the line.... x^2 and y^2 bend and cross the axises twice. making them conic in nature.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wow. Newton.. How about you take your attitude elsewhere. Just because someone is mistaken doesn't mean you get to be uncivil.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0When someone makes about 5 threads with the same question, then spams other threads with it also, you think they still deserve respect? Nice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think that there are more civil ways to tell someone that they don't need to repeatedly repost the same thing over and over, just as there are less civil ways I could be explaining this to you. If we don't treat each other with respect things quickly devolve into the kind of "NO U" nonsense you see everywhere else online.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I could have explained it several ways, like telling him that an equation in x^2 and y^2 only will have symmetry in both axis, so can, by definition, not be a linear equation. Or another way. .... If he'd asked once. Polpak, you can have your 81 fans, and I'll have my superior Mathematical abilities? Deal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x^2 = y^2, therefore x = ±y , so this graph will consist of 2 lines, not one (x=y in the first quadrant, reflected into all the others, which you could see as 2 lines, x = y and x = y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The graphs only start curving into hyperbola if y^2 = mx^2 + k, not if y^2 = mx^2 i.e. y^2 propto x^2
