  1. what is (25-17)/(2-1) ?
    8

    what is
    (1 - -7) /( -1 - -2) ?
    8/1 = 8

    humm looks like slope = 8 so far

    but what about
    (17 -8)/ (1 - 0) = 9 !!!!!
    oh my, not the same slope
    crash
    not on a straight line of constant slope

  7. It is almost a linear function, if the 8 becomes a 9, i.e. the y-values become
    -7,1,9,17,25.

    Otherwise the answer is no.
