For the linear function
f(x) = 5x + 3
(a) Determine the slope and y-intercept
(b) Use the slope and y-intercept to graph the linear function.
(c) Determine the average rate of change of the function
(d) Determine whether the linear function is increasing, decreasing, or constant.

    a) by the "just look at it" theorem
    slope = 5, y-intercept is 3

    b) can't graph on here
    c) average rate of change = slope = 5
    d) the slope is positive, so the function is increasing

    college algebra ?? mmmhh.
