MATH PLEASE HELP
posted by Amy .
x = 2 , 4 , 6 , 8
y = 18, 34, 50, 66
This is supposed to be a table where the x lines up with the y in order
How would I find the equation to solve this when x = 20?
x goes up by +2
y goes up by +16 but starts with 18
The relationship is
y = 2 + 8 x
if x = 18, y = 146
Also, how did you come up with the equation?
Where did the 8 and 2 come from?
I understand now
8 was the obvious slope.
I picked the constant term 2 so that any one of the (x,y) combinations would match.
