For each value of \(x\) increasing by 1 the value of \(y\) increases by 3 or there is a constant rate of change of 3.
When \(x = 3\), \(y = 11\). When \(x = 5\), \(y = 17\).
When \(y = 29\), \(x = 9\)
Would you describe the pattern as linear, exponential or quadratic? Explain your thinking. How might you convince a classmate?
This is linear because it grows by adding 3 for each consecutive value of \(x\).
