1. Gina wants to begin by figuring out how long the corn bed will be. She knows that in her previous two gardens, she was able to plant 2 rows in a 5 foot long space and 5 rows in an 11 foot long space. Find a linear equation for the length of the bed (y) in which she can fit x rows of corn.

Hint: Use the two pairs of values from her previous two gardens to write two ordered pairs of the form (x,y), then use these pairs to write an equation of the form y = mx + b.
