A linear function has a constant slope, or a constant change in y. Look at the x column first. Do you see that the x changes by the same amount every time? Cool! So that means that, if the function is linear, I should see the y also change by the same amount every time. Check to see if it does.

Wait... I got something else. THe slope was different for each

4. gandalfwiz

For instance, the slope between the last two points was 2/7, or 1/3.5

5. gandalfwiz

But the slope between the second to last and third to last points was 1/4

6. gandalfwiz

So no, I don't think it's linear
