Determine which function has the greater rate of change in problems 1-3.

A. The rate of change is equal.

B. The graph has a greater rate of change.

C. The table has a greater rate of change.

D. None of the above

A. The rate of change is equal.

B. The graph has a greater rate of change.

C. The table has a greater rate of change.

D. None of the above

Answer:

The correct answer is 

A. The rate of change is equal.

The rate of change is equal to the change in y values divided by the change in the x-values. From the table, the values of x and y are written here in ordered pair form: (-1, 0), (0, 1), (1, 2), (2, 3). The change in y is 1 and that of x is also 1. Therefore, the rate of change is 1. From the graph, the value of change of y and x are both 1 also.
