n: 2, 4, 6
m: 6, 12, 16
Which function rule would help you find the values in the table.
m = 3n
m = n  6
m = n 3
m = 6n

Math Steve 
Batman,
Please help

Math 
Steve,
Well, I'd say 3n, except that 3(6) = 18, not 16.
Typo?
As you can see, none of the choices fits all three pairs.

M =  3n?
does that make a differnece?

Batman,
m =  3n?
does that make a differnece? 
Math 
Steve,
You can see that the three points do not lie on a straight line, so no linear function will do. There is a parabola which contains all three points
m = (n^218n+8)/4
but that's not an option 
Math 
Batman,
So which one would be the best one to pick?

Math 
Steve,
NONE
unless the 16 is really 18
But, m = 3n is the closest of the three.
At least it contains two of the pairs; the other choices miss the mark for all three of them. 
Math 
Batman,
WAIT! It is 18 not 16. Sorry

Math 
Batman,
LOL ☺ Sorry for the trouble i now know the answer. Thanks you soo much
