Mary has a piece of wood 12 feet long. She needs to cut off a section to use in a project. Investigate the function defined by inputs that are the amount of wood she cuts off and outputs that are the amount of wood remaining on the original piece of wood.
Make a table and a graph for the function. What kind of function is it?
What is the equation for the function?
What are the domain and the range of the function?
What are the x- and y-intercepts on the graph and what do they represent?
