# You Decide, Part 1

Let’s look at Table I a bit closer.

Table I
$$x$$ $$y$$
$$-2$$ $$-4$$
$$-1$$ $$-1$$
$$0$$ $$2$$
$$1$$ $$5$$
$$2$$ $$8$$

If you were to describe a pattern, what would it be?

What might the next entry in the table be?

If the $$x$$ value is 5, what would the $$y$$ value be?

If a possible $$y$$ value is 29, what might the $$x$$ value be?

Would you describe the pattern as linear, exponential or quadratic? Explain your thinking. How might you convince a classmate?
