    An equation y=f(x) can be thought as a model that describes the relationship between x and y.

    Basically, for each x, the model says given x input, the output should be y=f(x). So this model gives you the output (y) for each input.

    We notice that y=f(x) can be plotted on a 2D-plane. For each point (x,f(x)) on the graph of our ...
