Is this function linear? \[\sum_{k=1}^{n}\left(a - a_1\right)\cdot\left(a-a_2\right)\cdots\left(a-a_n\right)\] Where \(a_1,a_2, \ldots, a_n \in \left[0,a\right]\).

    This function does not seem to be linear.

    If it's linear it will be maximum at end points right?

    if some function were xy + y + x, would it still be linear? y and x are variables. or (a-y)(a-x).
