The table below represents a linear function f(x) and the equation represents a function g(x):
1 9
0 1
1 7
g(x)
g(x) = 3x  2
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).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont understand how to change that table into an equation. i know that the last numbers of the equation is  1 because 0 times any number is 0 and then you get 1 because of you subtract 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To convert any table of data that represents only "linear function" then you have to know the general formula of any line which is known to be : \[y/f(x) = mx + c\] where m is the slope of that line while c is known as yintercept .. the part that the line intercepts yaxis when x = 0 So now it is obvious that f(x) has the form mx+c

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1a linear equation is of the form y = mx + b where m is the slope and b is the y value when x = 0 in the form of a table you are given the x and corresponding y value

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To get m U choose any two points from the given table and get the slope using the slope formula : slope = y2y1 / x2x1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if i would use 1,7 and 1,9 would that work?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And to get c U have to plug with any point with the values of x , y and m then you have an equation of one unknown which is c , then solve to get c and you then have the equation Let me know if U got it :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1actually this question does not want the equation for f(x) it only asks to compare the slopes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i understand that but that equation you gave for me to find the slope is hard to understand. i had chosen two points and had gotten the wrong slope
