Some facts#
 The linear function is a function that can be presented in the following form:
$y=a \cdot x+b$where:
 $y$  function value (the function value at single point x, often marked as f(x)),
 $x$  function argument (called also independent value),
 $a$, $b$  linear function coefficients (slope and free parameter).
 The graph of the linear function is a straight line.
 Slope of a linear function defines the degree of slope of the line to the OX axis ("horizontal"). Depending on the slope value, we can distinguish three cases:
 when the slope is zero (a = 0)  the function is reduced to the constant function, its plot is a line parallel to the OX axis,
 when the slope is positive (a > 0)  the function is increasing, it's plot is a line going towards the upper right corner of the graph,
 when the slope is negative (a < 0)  the function is decreasing, its plot is a line going towards the lower right corner of the graph.
 when the slope is zero (a = 0)  the function is reduced to the constant function, its plot is a line parallel to the OX axis,
 A linear function can have one, infinitely many or no zeros (roots). This depends on the parameter values a and b as follow:
 when the slope a is different from zero (a ≠ 0)  the function has exactly one root (zero point), the plot of the function crosses the OX axis one time in the point:
$x=\frac{b}{a}$  when the slope a is zero, but the free parameter b is not (a = 0 and b ≠ 0)  function has no roots (zero points), it's plot does not cross the OX axis, the function is reduced to the form:
$y = b$  if both the slope a and the free parameter b are zero (a = 0 and b = 0)  the function has infinite number of roots (zero points), it's plot coincides with the axis OX:
$y = 0$
 when the slope a is different from zero (a ≠ 0)  the function has exactly one root (zero point), the plot of the function crosses the OX axis one time in the point:
 The linear function is a special case of the polynomial function with the order of 0 (when a = 0) or 1.
