Let y = 4t + 2 be a linear function representing the distance from home for an ant t minutes after starting out from a location near its home. What does the number 4 represent in this function?
The ant is 4 feet from its home after t minutes.
The ant started out 4 feet from its home.
The ant is crawling at 4 feet per minute.
The ant is moving 4 feet every 2 minutes.
how about letting t = 1, 2, 3, 4, ... minutes
and then interpret the results.
What do you notice about the distance for every minute of change in time.
is it crawling 4 feet per every minute?
also does the 2 in the equation represent the distance that the ant started out from its home?
yes and yes
oh okay, thank you
