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) Part B: Which function has a greater yintercept? Justify your answer. (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, given two points, do you know how to find the "slope" ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I don't seem to remember either, see if you can find it in your notes quick

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You may take any two points to find the slope, maybe simply take the last two points : (0, 1) and (1, 9)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.210 is the slope of f(x), we got that by using the slope formula. lets find the slope of g(x) also so that we can compare

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need to find? the slope of g(x)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, because PartA is asking you to find both the slopes and compare them `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)`

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Finding slope of g(x) is easy, we can simply eyeball it. Use below : slope of the line \(g(x) = \color{red}{m}x+b\) is \(\color{Red}{m}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2slope of the line \(g(x) = \color{red}{5}x+1\) is \(\color{Red}{?}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Easy, slope of the line \(g(x) = \color{red}{5}x+1\) is \(\color{Red}{5}\) as i said you simply need to eyeball it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so which function has greater slope, f(x) or g(x) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2we have worked both the slopes just now slope of f(x) = 10 slope of g(x) = 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2are you really saying, you're not sure which of those two numbers is big ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you should say, the function f(x) has larger slope compared to the slope of g(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2looks we're done with partA for partB, what do you know about y intercepts ?
