To convert an equation to linear form, namely Y = mX + c.
Replacing the value of the y-axis and x-axis with the Y and the X value will result in a linear graph. This would simplify the graph and allows us to discover the relationship between the more variables more quickly and efficiently.
EG: y = ab^x
convert to Y = mX + c format
lg both sides:
lg y = lg a + x lg b
Convert to form Y = mX + c
lg y (Y) = x (X) lg b(m) + (lg a)
Full explanation inclusive of graph and conversion to Y = mX + c.
