## chubbytots Group Title Make an (x,y) Table in which is there is a constant ratio of -1/4 between the x- and y- values. include at least four pairs of corresponding values. 1 is done. here 1. x: -8, -4 , 4 , 8 y: 2 , 1 , -1 , -2 2.make a prediction: will the graph of this relationship slope up or down to the right? 3. As x increases by 1 unit, by how much does y increase or decrease? this value is the slope of the line. 4. sketch a graph of this relationship. HELP ME PLS one year ago one year ago

i would say it would go down, because as $$x$$ gets larger, $$y$$ gets smaller

2. satellite73

because the constant ratio is $$-\frac{1}{4}$$, as $$x$$ increases by 1 unit, $$y$$ decreases by $$\frac{1}{4}$$ unit

well the ratio is $-\frac{1}{4}$ sooo in that sense.. the slope is also the ratio....
