Instructions
Part 1
You will need to measure five different people. Record your measurements on a piece of paper. Using a tape measure or ruler, measure the length (in inches) of a person’s left foot and then measure the length (in inches) of that same person’s forearm (between their wrist and elbow). Refer to the diagrams below. You will have two measurements for each person.
(An easy way to measure the length of a foot is to have your subject stand on a piece of paper. Then, trace their foot and measure the outline once they move off the paper.)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To measure the forearm, measure inside the arm, between the wrist and the elbow. Part 2 Organize your data and find the rate of change. A.Create a table of the measurements for your data. Label the forearm measurements as your input and the foot measurements as your output. B.Select two sets of points and find the rate of change for your data. C.Describe your results. If you had to express this relation as a verbal statement, how would you describe it? Part 3 Compare rates of change. A.The equation below can be used to find the length of a foot or forearm when you know one or the other. (length of the foot) = 0.860 • (length of the forearm) + 3.302 If you let y = length of the foot and x = length of the forearm, this equation can be simplified to y = 0.860x + 3.302. Using this equation, how long would the foot of a person be if his forearm was 17 inches long? B.What is the rate of change of the equation from Part A? Compare the equation from Part A to your data. Are they the same? Which has a greater rate of change? Why do you think the values are different? C.Is the relation in your data a function? Why or why not? Could the equation in Part A represent a function? Why or why not? Explain your answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So E is 7 inches for the left arm? and E is 8 1/2 inches for the right arm?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its left arm and left foot for all of ( A>E)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so they want you to make x = length of left arm and y = length of left foot?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes I think that's what its asking but what im stuck on is how do I put my measurements in to an input and output chart? is there a rule I have to follow? and how do I find my rate of change?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the inputs look like the length of the arm (ie x) the outputs are the length of the foot (ie y)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[\Large \text{rate of change} = \frac{\text{change in y}}{\text{change in x}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yeah rate of change = slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you either use the data you gathered or this equation they give you (length of the foot) = 0.860 • (length of the forearm) + 3.302

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so let me see if I got the gist of it my entire input and output chart is above and to find the rate of change I plug both the input and ouput into the equation you gave? to get the final result ( part 3) of my question? o.o

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3it says `B.Select two sets of points and find the rate of change for your data. ` so you can select say these two points dw:1437708968206:dw find the difference in y, then the difference in x, then divide (y over x) to get the slope

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so this> 87/7 1/26 1/2 = 1/1 =1 as my slope?
