11-74.

Substitute the values of x into the function and solve for y and look for a pattern.

Substitute 5 for x in the equation or continue the pattern from the table.

y = 5.5

See part A.

x = −28

Answers will vary. If you used the table and continued the pattern, you used inductive reasoning. If you used the rule to solve the problems, you used deductive reasoning.
