The table represents a linear function. The graph and the table are attached below. The independent variable y is 5 plus three times the quantity of the independent variable. The equation is y=3x+5

Work Step by Step

The equation of the relationship is y=3x+5 because when there is no independent variable, the value of the dependent variable is 5 and then as the independent variable increases by 1, the dependent variable increases by 3 and so the slope is 3 and the y-intercept is 5.
