# Is the relationship in the table linear, exponential, or neither? Explain how you know.

Is the relationship in the table linear, exponential, or neither? Explain how you know. Write an equation relating the amount saved(s) in dollars to time (t) in weeks. Explain what the slope and y-int**A- It's LINEAR: every 2 other weeks, her savings increase by a CONSTANT amount of $12 (per 2 weeks) or $6/weekB- After the 2 first week she had $20 less the $12 (baby sitting for 2 weeks) =$8. This is the amount she saved prior to babysitting , then each week she added $6 (or $12 in 2 weeks) If Y is the total amount of saving after a period of time T & $6 is the rate per week & she started with $8, then the equation becomes Y= 6 T +8, where T is the number of weeksC- the slope is the coefficient of T that means 6As for Y intercept or where the function intercepts the Y axis it happens for T=0 & in this case Y intercept = 8Hope it's clear**...
