FNGR 1 | Lesson 3 | Explore (You decide, linear, exponential or quadratic?)

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?
