It has been observed that a particular plant's growth is directly proportional to time. It measured 2 cm when it arrived at the nursery ang 2.5 cm exactly one week later. If the plant continues to grow at this rate, determine the function that represents the plant's growth. Thank you! :)

  1. clearly the plant grows at 1/2 cm/week

    So, you have a slope and a point (0,2)
