The acceleration of a falling object due to gravity varies inversely with the square of the object's distance from the center of the Earth, x =1 Earth radius, the acceleration is y = 9.8 m/s^2
 Use the multiplymultiply pattern of power function to find the acceleration at 3 and 9 radii from the center.
Find the particular equation expressing y as a function of x
