**Chapter – 4 Linear Equations in Two Variables**

- Linear Equations
- Solution of a Linear Equation
- Graph of a Linear Equation in Two Variables
- Equations of Lines Parallel to x-axis and y-axis

- An equation of the form ax + by + c = 0 where a, b and c are real numbers such that a and b are not both zero is called a linear equation in two variables.
- A pair of values of x and y which satisfy the equation ax + by + c = 0 is called a solution of the equation.
- Graph: The graph of every linear equation in two variables is a straight line. Every point on the graph of a linear equation in two variables is two variables is a solution of the linear equation. Conversely, every solution of the linear equation is a point on the graph of the linear equation.
- A linear equation in two variables has infinitely many solutions.
- The graph of every linear equation in two variables is a straight line.
- y = 0 is the equation of x-axis and x = 0 is equation of y-axis.
- The graph of x = a is a straight line parallel to the y-axis.
- The graph of y = a is a straight line parallel to the x-axis.
- An equation of the type y = mx represent a line passing through the origin.
