6.5.1 Reduce Non-Linear Function to Linear Function – Examples (a) to (f)

Reduce each of the following equations to the linear form. Hence, state the gradient and the Y-intercept of the linear equations in terms of  a and b.
(a)  y = a x 3 + b x 2
(b)  y = a x + b x
(c)  y = a x b x 2
(d)  x y = p x + q x
(e)  y = a x + b x
(f)  a y = b x + 1

[Note :
X and Y cannot have constant, but can have the variables (for example x and y)
 m and c can only have the constant (for example a and b), cannot have the variables x and y]
