I have a couple questions I need help on.

Which model is most appropriate for the data set?

(-1,20),(0,10),(1,5),(2,20)

And

How many real-number solutions does the equation have?

-8x^2-8x-2=0

Thanks for the help

on the first sets, each increase in x results in y being increased by 5 (assuming you have a typo in the third set, and it should read (1,15). So linear.

divide by 2

1+4x+4x^2=0

(1+2x)^2=0

x= -1/2, -1/2 so one real solution.
