**Reiny**, Tuesday, December 15, 2009 at 9:32amAre we supposed to assume the relation is linear, i.e., the number of leaves is directly proportional to the length of the vine??

If so, then let the length of the vine be x

let the number of leaves by y

we have two ordered pairs given (3,2) and (15,14)

slope = (14-2)/(15-3) =

then y = x + b

using (3,2)

2 = 3 + b

b = -1

then y = x - 1 , where x ≥ 1

so when x = 6, y = 5

there would be 5 leaves for a 6 inch long vine.

(common sense would have shown that the number of leaves appears to be one less than the length of vine number)
