Students who are afraid of math really freak out when they hear the term Linear equation.

An Equation in linear equation means that Y is equal to X plus or minus or divided by some value. Y = X + 5. That's it. Nothing more.
Y = X+5, is a linear equation. Don't be scared. To Graph this equation, you give X a value and then you will get Y.
X is equal to 2, therefore, Y = 2+5,...
