The table below represents the displacement of a turtle from its nest as a function of time:
Time
(hours)
x Displacement
from nest
(miles)
y
0 5
1 27
2 49
3 71
4 93
Part A: What is the yintercept of the function, and what does this tell you about the turtle?
Part B: Calculate the average rate of change of the function represented by the table between x = 1 to x = 4 hours, and tell what the average rate represents.
Part C: What would be the domain of the function if the turtle continued to walk at this rate until it traveled 225 miles from the nest?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1look at the row that has x = 0 what is next to that value?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so x = 0 and y = 5 pair up giving the ordered pair (0,5)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what this means is that at time 0 hours, the distance is 5 miles basically the turtle is 5 miles away from the nest at the beginning

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1`Part B: Calculate the average rate of change of the function represented by the table between x = 1 to x = 4 hours, and tell what the average rate represents.` fill in these blanks if x = 1, then y = ________ if x = 4, then y = ________

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we have these two points that are of interest to us (1,27) and (4,93)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1find the slope through those two points to get the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1slope formula \[\Large m = \frac{y_{2}y_{1}}{x_{2}x_{1}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if thats not right then i think it might be m=66/3

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you should get 66/3 which reduces to 22

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what does this mean in terms of the problem?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite the full picture though

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1slope = 22 = 22/1 this means that each time x increases by 1, y increases by 22 each time the hour amount goes up by 1, the mile amount goes up by 22 basically the turtle is going (22 miles)/(1 hour) = 22 mph. This is a very fast turtle lol
