Yesterday Mica was given some information and was asked to write a linear equation. But last night her cat destroyed most of the information! At right is all she has left: 6-62 HW eTool (Desmos). Homework Help ✎ Complete the table and graph the line that represents Mica’s rule.

Mica thinks the equation for this graph could be 2

*x*+*y*= −3. Is she correct? Explain why or why not. If not, write your own equation to match the graph and*x*→*y*table.

Because the equation is linear, the growth must be constant.

Use the points below to graph the line represented by Mica's chart.

Put the equation into *y = mx + b* form and see if the growth rate and *y*-intercept match the line you graphed in part (a).

Use the eTool below to help solve the problem.
