A familiar functional equation f(ax+b)=cf(x) will be solved in the class of functions f:. Applying this result we will investigate the Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability problem of the generalized additive Cauchy equation f(a1x1++amxm+x0)=i=1mbif(ai1x1++aimxm) in connection with the question of Rassias and Tabor.
