Next, draw a line through both points to create the graph of the linear function.
In Clear Lake, Iowa, during a particular evening, there is a 3-inch layer of snow on the ground. At midnight, it begins to snow. Each hour, one inch of snow falls. Graph a function that shows the amount of snow on the ground from midnight to 6 AM.
To begin, we can define the quantities that x and y represent.
The graph above shows the function f(x)=x+3. It can be seen that, at 6AM, there is a total of 9 inches of snow on the ground.
The graph shows the function Describe the intercepts, increasing/decreasing intervals, and end behavior. Then, show the features on the graph.
Use the graph of y=2.5x−1.5 to solve the equation 6=2.5x−1.5.
We can move down from this point on the graph to find the x-coordinate.
