The table below represents a linear function f(x) and the equation represents a function g(x):
x f(x)
−1 −9
0 −1
1 7
g(x) = 3x − 2
Part A: Write a sentence to compare the slope of the two functions and show the steps you used to determine the slope of f(x) and g(x). (6 points)
Part B: Which function has a greater yintercept? Justify your answer. (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we have \((x_1,y_1)=(−1 −9)\\ (x_2,y_2) =(0, −1)\) plug and play

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 You can also look at the table. y goes up by 8 units with every 1 x unit if you want the work, dw:1435690120022:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part A: Write a sentence to compare the slope of the two functions and show the steps you used to determine the slope of f(x) and g(x). (6 points) right, so the question wants us to compare them. what does that mean?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0just show that the slope of f(x) is bigger?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would i put the steps we did as the answer or just type 8>3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0definitely put the steps, and show how you got the slope using the slope formula. otherwise you're going to lose points unnecessarily then after that, put the slope of g(x) and then I guess it's enough to say 8>3 how about part B

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so when you're given an equation of the form y=mx+b what is the y intercept?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also conceptually what IS the y intercept?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so the y intercept is the point where x=0 so when we have equations like \(y=5x+3\) the slope is 5 and the yintercept is 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for f(x), you can just look at the table for when x=0 and find the y intercept
