Okay, I was doing some questions concerning linear law when I came across a question that asked me to convert a cubic equation into a 'linear equation' so that I can draw it on a graph.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Cubic Equation:

p(x+y-q) = qx^{3}

Then, I convert the above equation into:

y/x^{2}= (q/p)x

However, when I tried plotting the graph. Letting y/x^{2}to be the y-axis and x to be the x-axis, I got a curve, instead of a line!

What's wrong?
