Problem 1

In Exercises \(1-6,\) a table of values for a linear function is given. Fill in the missing value and calculate \(m\) in each case. $$ \begin{array}{|c|c|c|c|} \hline x & -1 & 0 & 1 \\ \hline y & 5 & 8 & \\\ \hline \end{array} $$

Expert verified

The missing y-value is 11, and the slope (m) of the linear function is 3.
