Malachi took cans to the recycling plant and put them into the cancrusher one at a time. After he had already crushed some of the cans, he started recording the number of cans he crushed per minute. The table shows how many cans Malachi put in the cancrusher at different times.
What is the equation that represents Malachi’s situation? Record any fractional answers in decimal form.
(y – 65) = (x – )
Malachi’s Situation
Minutes 3 5 7 9
Cans crushed 49 65 81 97

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0differences in minutes: 2 2 2 (x differences) differences in cans crushed: 16 16 16 (y differences) Since the same differences in x causes same differences in y, this is a linear relationship. The slope of the straight line is: difference in y / difference in x = 16 / 2 = 8. The equation of the line in slopepoint form is: y  y1 = m(x  x1) m = 8. If we choose (5,65) as the point from the table then: y  65 = 8(x  5)
