linear relationship

  

Definition

A relationship of direct proportionality that, when plotted on a graph, traces a straight line. In linear relationships, any given change in an independent variable will always produce a corresponding change in the dependent variable. For example, a linear relationship between production hours and output in a factory means that a 10 percent increase or decrease in hours will result in a 10 percent increase or decrease in the output.
