If you suspect that the rule is a straight line,
y=mx+b
then find the slope using
m=(y2y1)/(x2x1)
Substitute m and (x1,y1) into the equation to find b.
Verify that the rule applies to all the points.

First make a table to show input and output.
IN. OUT
0. 2
1. 4
2. 6
.. ..
Notice that the difference between outputs is 2.
But 2 times each input does NOT give the correct output. However, if you add 2 to the product of 2 and input, you get the correct output.
Therefore, the rule is 2x +2 where x is the input.
