    linear = straight line

    each piece looks linear, but overall it's not linear since it's not a full straight line

    I'd have to see the full problem myself (eg: screenshot)

    also, if this is for higher order class, linear must also go through the origin. So y=mx+b is linear iff b=0

    the distance in y centimeters of an ant from a hole in the tree for a certain amount of time x in seconds is shown in the graph:|dw:1443325550906:dw| is the graph linear or nonlinear?

    The ant moves at a constant velocity. F = m*a = m* dv/dt = m* 0 = 0 does not accelerate ,

    The ants velocity is the slope at any point on the position V. time graph The slope is constant, and is the Velocity,

    ok but what want to know is it linear or nonlinear?

    non-linear position vs time graphs will have a continuously changing slope , when the ant changes velocity

    ha forget all that if you want, they are lines

    The slopes of A , B, and C line segments, are all constant values

    The ant moves out to 12 at a uniform speed, stops and waits at rest for some time, then moves 12 in the other direction back at another uniform speed,

    when its a linear its usually the odd exponents curve its usually the even exponent
