a.) y=1/2 x+ 58
b) y = 1/2x + 10
c) y=12x +58
d) y=12x+10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1(h,s)  (6,82) (4,58)  (2,24) ; slope = s/h = 24/2 = 12 (10,130)  ( 4, 58)  (6 , 72) ; slope = s/h = 72/6 = 12 so its either c or d from that experiment

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lets use (4,58) into the equation of d to check for it :) y=12x+10 58 = 12(4)+10 58 = 48 + 10 58 = 58 ; so (d) works out good
