This is a linear function.

 

A linear function is a type of function where its resulting graph is a straight line. Linear functions have a standard form.

 

\(f(x)=mx+b\)

 

f(x) is the same thing as y.

m is the slope of the function

b is the y-intercept.

 

We can rearrange the above equation, \(y=10000+350x\) into that form. Just swap the terms on the right side of the equation

 

\(y=350x+10000\)

 

In the above equation, we have defined all the terms; the slope, m, is 350, and the y-intercept is 10000. Therefore, this is a linear function.

 

Well, I would have supplied the link to a graph, but Cphill beat me to it already...
