4-56.

Translate these algebraic statements into words: $y = 2x + 5$ and $y = 6x + 5$.

1. What do you know about Figure 0 for each pattern?

2. Which pattern grows most quickly? How do you know?

The first can be stated as $y$ is twice $x$ increased by $5$ and the second can be stated as $y$ is $6$ times $x$ increased by $5$.

What is the starting point for each algebraic statement?

Both Figure 0s have $5$ tiles.

Which algebraic statement has greater growth?
