I'm doing Algebra II virtual school. I've asked my teacher and tutors about these types of question and they cannot provide a sufficient answer. Please someone help me figure this out I would greatly appreciate it. A sample problem or hints would be nice, I do not want the answer I simply want to know how to approach the problem.
The resistance (R) in a wire increases when the length of the wire (L) increases. Write the correct equation for this scenario, and solve for when the length is 1.
Length I Resistance

10 I 2

15 I 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0R increases as L increases, so R is dependent on L. R → dependent variable L → independent variable You can write the given data as points in the form (L, R). The points are (10, 2) and (15, 3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can use two points to write the equation of the line. Start by finding the slope. Do you know the formula and how to use it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0R = 20 over L; R = 20 R = .2L; R = 5 R = .2L; R = .2 R = 20 over L; R = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01/5 is the same as 0.2, so the slope is correct
