## anonymous one year ago Which function below has the largest slope? f(x) x f(x) −3 −10 −1 −7 1 −4 g(x) equals one half x plus 3 h(x) Lance gains 1 level each time he plays his favorite video game. He started at level 10.

So far, 7 is the largest slope |dw:1443988214761:dw| Now check the others $$g(x) = \cfrac{1}{2}x+3h(x)$$ The slope for this one is $$\cfrac{1}{2}$$ - does this part make sense? Now compare to 7 above? Is it smaller or larger? Finally, Lance's points $$=1\times x + 10$$ The slope here is 1. Is this larger or smaller than 7? Do you now see the function with the largest slope?
