Outputs of A Linear Function

Here is a graph of y=f(x)y = f(x) where f(x)=2x+5f(x) = 2x + 5.

A template for answering this question. Ask your instructor for an alternative.

5) How do the values of ff change whenever xx increases by 1, for instance, when it increases from 1 to 2, or from 19 to 20?

6) Explain or show how you know.

Here is an expression we can use to find the difference in the values of ff when the input changes from xx to x+1x + 1.

[2(x+1)+5][2x+5]\left[2(x + 1) + 5\right] - \left[2x + 5\right]

7) Does this expression have the same value as what you found in the previous questions?

True or false? Write below.

8) Show your reasoning.

9) How do the values of ff change whenever xx increases by 4?

10) Explain or show how you know.

11) Write an expression that shows the change in the values of ff when the input value changes from xx to x+4x + 4.

12) Show or explain how that expression has a value of 8.

Outputs of An Exponential Function

Here is a table that shows some input and output values of an exponential function gg. The equation g(x)=3xg(x) = 3^x defines the function.

\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline \\[-1em] x & g(x) \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] 3 & 27 \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] 4 & 81 \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] 5 & 243 \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] 6 & 729 \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] 7 & 2,187 \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] 8 & 6,561 \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] & \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] & \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] x & \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] x + 1 & \\[-1em] \\ \hline \end{array}

13) How does g(x)g(x) change every time xx increases by 1?

14) Show or explain your reasoning.

15) Choose two new input values that are consecutive whole numbers and find their output values. Record them below.

16) How do the output values change for those two input values?

Complete the table with the output when the input is xx and when it is x+1x + 1. Write the expressions that belong in the labeled cells in the answer boxes below.

xg(x)xAx+1B\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline \\[-1em] x & g(x) \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] x & \text{A} \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] x + 1 & \text{B} \\[-1em] \\ \hline \end{array}

17) Cell A

18) Cell B

19) Look at the change in output values as the xx increases by 1. Does it still agree with your findings earlier?

True or false? Write below.

20) Choose two xx-values where one is 3 more than the other (for example, 1 and 4). How do the output values of gg change as xx increases by 3?

Complete this table with the output when the input is xx and when it is x+3x + 3. Write the expressions that belong in the labeled cells in the answer boxes below.

xg(x)xAx+3B\begin{array}{|c|c|} \hline \\[-1em] x & g(x) \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] x & \text{A} \\[-1em] \\ \hline \\[-1em] x + 3 & \text{B} \\[-1em] \\ \hline \end{array}

21) Cell A

22) Cell B

23) Look at the change in output values as xx increases by 3. Does it agree with your findings in the previous question?

True or false? Write below.

24) Show your reasoning.
