3-15.

Remember the conjecture developed in problem 3-5 and find the slope function, , for each of the following functions.

BASIC CONJECTURE that you should have made during class: The slope function is one-degree lower than the original function.

ADVANCED CONJECTURE that you might have made during class:The slope function is one degree lower than the original function AND stretched by the degree of the original function.

Refer to hint for part (a).

This one does not require a conjecture - an Algebra I student could do it! This is the equation of a straight line. What is its slope?

Refer to hint for part (c).
