The table below represents the distance of a car from its destination as a function of time:
(I'll post the table right now, also person who helps gets a medal, fan, and testimony)
Part A: What is the yintercept of the function and what does this tell you about the car?
Part B: Calculate the average rate of change of the function represented by the table between x = 1 to x = 3 and what does the average rate represent?
Part C: What would be the domain of this function if the car traveled the same rate until it reached its destination?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Part A is just talking about what is it the Yintercept of the function, in other words, which column which is the y and what does it say about the equation?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2once you figure out the slope, then you can use the slopeintercept form \((yy_1) = m \times (xx_1) \) solve for y and whatever your constant is the yintercept

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we can say that your average rate of change (how much you're traveling at every moment in time) or simply your speed is going to be \(\large s = \frac{final~distance  initial~distance}{final ~time  initial~ time} \)
