Recognizing Linear Functions 1.8 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Recognizing Linear Functions
We want to determine if the rate of change in cost is constant with respect to the number of pencils bought. To do so, we will calculate the rate of change between each consecutive pair of points. We will use the rate of change formula to find the rate of change between two points. The first two points are and Let's substitute them in the above formula.
The rate of change between the first two points is We will use the same method to find the rate of change between and and between and
Pair of Points

As shown, all the rates are the same. This means that the rate of change is constant.
