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 y-intercept 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?

`Part A: What is the y-intercept of the function, and what does this tell you about the turtle?` when x = 0, what is the value of y?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
The information is given in the table

yea

  • jim_thompson5910
do you see where I'm referring to?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no sorry not that good at math
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
look at the row that has x = 0 what is next to that value?

5
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so x = 0 and y = 5 pair up giving the ordered pair (0,5)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what 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

ok so i write a equation
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
no you just use words to explain what the y intercept means
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
similar to how I explained it just now

ok got it .......................so for part B I din't know how to do it can you help me
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
`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 = ________

Y=27 Y=93
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so we have these two points that are of interest to us (1,27) and (4,93)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
find the slope through those two points to get the answer
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
slope formula \[\Large m = \frac{y_{2}-y_{1}}{x_{2}-x_{1}}\]

  • anonymous
if thats not right then i think it might be m=-66/3
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you should get 66/3 which reduces to 22
anonymous
  • anonymous
yep
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what does this mean in terms of the problem?
anonymous
  • anonymous
22 miles i think
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
close
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
not quite the full picture though
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
slope = 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
