This is going to be a linear function. On the horizontal axis, you will have weeks. On the vertical axis will be weeks. The slope of the line is 6/1 = 6, since she plays 6 hrs/week. At week 0 (the y-axis), the value will be 8, since that is the initial number of hours played. Therefore, the equation is: f(x) = 6x+8 f(x) is # hours x = #'d weeks
