The table shows some values for the function f. If f is a linear function, what is the value of a+b?
a24
b36
c48
d72
eit cannot be determined from the information given.
x f(x)
0 a
1 24
2 b
The Answer is c48. How did they arrive at that answer?????????
The distance from a to 24 is the same as the distance from 24 to b.
So, 24a = b24
rearrange the terms to solve for
a+b = you do it.
I guess I do 24+24=48 right?
