# You Decide, Part 3

Let’s look at Table III a bit closer.

Table III
$$x$$ $$y$$
$$-2$$ $$3.25$$
$$-1$$ $$3.5$$
$$0$$ $$4$$
$$1$$ $$5$$
$$2$$ $$7$$

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

What might the next entry in the table be?

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

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