Visualizing Linear Functions (I)

Problem: Suppose that the variable y is a linear function of x with y = f (x) = mx + b and the following table of values.
y = f (x)

Move the points (A, B) and (C,D) on the cartesian graph below to match the ordered pairs of data in the table.

  1. Based on this information, use the point (E,F) on the cartesian graph (or the related transformation figure) to

  2. a) estimate f (0).
    b) estimate the value of an x so that f (x) = 0.
    Enter your answer for f (0):
    Enter your answer for the where f (x) = 0
    Click here to check: 
    The correct answer for f (0):
    The correct answer for the x where f (x) = 0
  3. Describe how the solutions to this problem are related to the positions of E and F on the transformation figure for and the point (E,F) on the cartesian graph.
