By using the measurements of the speed of a ball thrown verticall, you will learn how to find the x-intercept of a function by using data tables, graphs, and algebraic expressions.
After completing this tutorial, you will be able to complete the following:
What is the x-intercept of a graph of a function?
~ The x-intercept of a graph of a function is a point at which the graph crosses the x-axis (horizontal axis).
Use your data table from problem 2 to plot points on the graph of the linear function . Then sketch the graph of this function.
~ We plot the points from the table above and then connect them with a straight line since we know that the function is linear.
